Ford donates $100,000 in a month to Joplin and other communities
The Ford Motor Company Fund is donating another $50,000 to assist with hunger relief efforts in communities hit by tornadoes, bringing the total donations to Feeding America this month to $100,000.
Additionally, employees at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant, including employees with UAW Local 249, and local Ford offices are assisting with relief efforts in Joplin, Mo. An employee gate collection is expected to raise several thousand dollars in further contributions.
“Our hearts go out to our neighbors without shelter and food in the wake of these devastating storms,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund. “Our partnership with Feeding America allows us to provide help where it is needed most.”
