Ford is making the holidays significantly warmer—not to mention merrier— for a lot of people this year. The American carmaker recently held its fourth annual Coat & Jacket Drive, delivering more than 1,000 new and gently used coats, hats, scarves, and gloves to the Salvation Army, thanks to Ford employee donations.
“Surviving the cold of a Michigan winter means bundling up in a warm coat with a hat and gloves,” said Janet Lawson, director of Ford Volunteer Corps. “Unfortunately, many of our neighbors struggle each day to stay warm and to find enough food, and we’re hoping to ease that burden.”
One way Ford employees are helping ease this burden is through Ford’s Accelerated Action Day. During this day, more than 700 Ford employees volunteered in 50 community service projects in eight states to help enhance both their communities and the lives of individuals living there.
