GM Wants to Help You with Back to School Supplies

A few months ago I test-drove a Chevy Eco for a week as a treat for simply being a Mom.  Now I'm partnering with GM Northeast to help fill backpacks of school supplies for local families! 

Operation Backpack

I'll be getting a GM loaner car to use to deliver much-needed backpacks filled with all sorts of school supplies to Operation Backpack.  My twins will be entering 4th grade and I am expecting to spend $50 or $60 on supplies...NOT including a new backpack and lunchbox! That is an incredible burden on many families in our area who have already been affected by the mortgage crisis, layoffs, and more. If you think you can help, I encourage join us August 9th as we deliver supplies for Operation Backpack to Central Union Mission at 1350 R Street, NW Washington, DC 20009. You might also consider donating direct to the Operation Backpack program at Volunteers of America.

Do YOU Need Help with School Supplies?

One local blogger is giving away $100 gift card for a local family to win to help purchase school supplies. Not only that, the winner will be chauffered around in a GM loaner car as they shop!  Want to enter or do you know someone who really needs the help?

Visit  The Mummy Chronicles to nominate someone you think might benefit from the generosity of both GM, and Vicky who is hosting the giveaway.

Chevy Cruze Eco - Who needs to Carpool Anyway?

Recently I had the chance to drive the new 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco for a week.

It. Was. Awesome.

First, it was nice to ditch my bulky, slow, 125,000 mile minivan for a week and zip around in a sporty little Chevy Cruze.

Second, I'm convinced the Cruze Eco doesn't run on gas. It can't. They delivered it with a full tank and I drove ALL OVER the county to meetings, activities, and on errands I was saving up to do that week - I don't think I used half a tank!

Third, it was quick, comfortable, and offered a really smooth ride considering how low I felt to the ground. Also, I was never a big American car person. That has changed.

The only thing that is not great about it, is that it's not practical for carpooling. BUT, it hardly uses gas so I don't mind driving just my kids anyway! Who needs to carpool when you have the Chevy Cruze Eco?
