As you might remember, we teamed up with 11 other Ford dealerships and Big Surf Waterpark to help collect water for the Salvation Army in order to support the Extreme Heat Hydration Program. As a result, more than 40,500 bottles of water were collected at the various Ford dealerships around the area.
“The Salvation Army is grateful to the Metro Phoenix Ford dealers for their support of our Hydrate Arizona campaign. As temperatures continue to rise, clean drinking water becomes a life and death issue. Thanks to the partnership with Ford Motor Company, we are able to provide relief to hundreds of men and women exposed to extreme conditions,” said Major John Brackenbury of the Salvation Army.
Sanderson Ford collected more bottles of water than any other Ford dealership in the area with a grand total of 18,000 bottles.
“This is our second year hosting a bottled water drive in conjunction with Big Surf and the Salvation Army and we exceeded last year’s total by more than 9,000 bottles,” said Steve Papanikolas, the Phoenix Regional Manager for Ford.
We are so proud of the amount of bottles of water we were able to collect for the Salvation Army and we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that donated and helped to make this possible!
