Ford Donates 16 Trucks to Charitable Organizations
Ford Motor Co. donated 16 of its pre-owned F-700 series medium duty van trucks to charities to help them meet their transportation needs.Ford executives turned over the keys to these 25-foot delivery vans to charities such as Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Focus:HOPE, who provide, among other things, food, clothing, shelter and medical supplies to the disadvantaged communities in America. Organizations like the DAV also provide professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services provided by the government. Ford’s North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations (NAFLRO) partnered with Ford Fund to identify which organizations needed these vehicles. After learning of the growing need for these trucks, which many of these organizations could not afford, NAFLRO and Ford Fund began a campaign to supplement these charities’ existing fleets in order to help them expand their daily operations.
