At Sanderson Ford, we’re proud to be associated with one of the top brands in the industry. Not only does Ford craft some of the finest cars, trucks, and SUVs on the market, but the company also invests in local communities. In fact, Ford recently expanded disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico by investing more than $1.2 million in food and community aid.
Even though it’s already 2018, many Puerto Ricans are still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, which happened late last year. According to Ford, a large portion of the $1.2 million it has invested in aid will go to mobile community centers across the island to provide easier access to food, resources, and services. The company is also donating money to fund educational grants, Transit Connect cargo vans, an F-150, water filters, and over 10,000 new books to replace those ruined by water damage.
“This effort is at the heart of Ford Fund’s mission to provide opportunities and access for people in need,” said Jim Vella, president of the Ford Motor Company Fund. “[It] allows us to expand our ongoing efforts to help rebuild the lives of thousands of Puerto Ricans following Hurricane Maria.”
Considering that Hurricane Maria was the worst natural disaster that Puerto Rico has on record, Ford’s generous initiative for early 2018 will provide the island significant relief as it rebuilds.
