DRIVE will focus on the wellness of children—offering assistance in health, nutrition, safety and common needs. The foundation will also initiate partnerships with local schools to help the availability of education to children of all ages who do not have the means to participate in higher education and training. DRIVE strives to create scholarships and other assistance programs to assist in the growth and education enhancement of the community’s youth.

DRIVE – R&E Family Foundation is a public, 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. All contributions are 100% tax deductible. (EIN: 83-2725217)

"DRIVE has been wonderful to work with. They have taken the burden of a large cost that I was looking at to help me focus better on Shelby. In the meantime of receiving this, we were able to set up a surgery date and get her procedure scheduled and not have to worry about the payment. We are extremely grateful for DRIVE and all they have done for our family. Thank you!"
The McMillan Family
“There aren't enough ways we can thank DRIVE. We are blown away by the generosity of this foundation! From the food bags to the amazing Christmas program to the school supplies and gift card donations. We called once to inquire about a shoe donation...a couple hours later they were at our building with the shoes we called inquiring about! We are definitely blessed to have DRIVE affiliated with Roberts Elementary!”
