Based in Grand Prairie, Texas, D&M Auto Leasing has ties all over the state, from the Dallas/Fort Worth area to Houston. Since its inception in 1976, D&M Auto Leasing has provided thousands of happy customers with vehicles; additionally, it is deeply involved in the communities it serves and contributes to charities such as Score a Goal in the Classroom.
Working to encourage and motivate students from kindergarten through twelfth grade, Score a Goal in the Classroom rewards those who demonstrate efforts to raise their grades, achieve good attendance, and overall become more responsible citizens. In the 1999-2000 school year, 34 school districts and 19 private schools in three different Texas counties participated in Score a Goal in the Classroom.
Score a Goal in the Classroom is a collaborative effort among the schools, entertainment venues, professional sports, and the business sector. These organizations contribute their time, efforts, and financial assistance in support of education. The nonprofit also hosts the Bayard H. Friedman Hero Award, which recognizes an outstanding school employee within the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Score a Goal in the Classroom hosts meetings every third Wednesday of the month at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Fort Worth.
