Ford Helps with Philanthropic Organization in New York City

Philanthropic organizations throughout the country provide amazing services to many different groups of people.  One particular philanthropic organization, located in New York City, is known as God’s Love We Deliver.  They provide delicious and nutritious meals for those individuals that are too sick to either shop for food or cook for themselves.  With their team of dietitians, they are able to tailor each meal to the medical needs of each client.

Now where does Ford come in?  Well, to get around the city, God’s Love We Deliver uses a fleet of Ford Econoline vans and a Ford Transit Connect Mobile Food Pantry.  With over 5,000 meals to deliver each weekday, the Ford fleet and commercial vehicles come in handy.

“We’re the end of the road, the final safety net for our clients.  Without us they would not have food, and without organizations like Ford, we couldn’t do what we do,” said David Ludwigson, the chief development officer of God’s Love We Deliver.

We think philanthropic organizations such as this one are doing amazing things in the communities around the United States.  If you are looking to set up your own organization such as this, come to Shults Ford of Harmarville to see what fleet and commercial vehicles we have in stock to help you get started!

The 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Takes to the Big Apple

2015 Ford Mustang convertible

As many of you know, the Ford Mustang celebrated its 50th anniversary recently and to commemorate the last 50 years, Ford celebrated in the same way it did with the very first Ford Mustang convertible: the put the 2015 Ford Mustang convertible on top of the Empire State Building.  It’s sitting on the 86th floor observation deck to be exact.

As a country, we may be more technologically advanced than what we were 50 years ago, but the Mustang had to make its way to the top just like it did 50 years ago; on the only freight elevator.  In order to do this, it had to be cut in precise measurements to make sure it would fit on the elevator and then be rebuilt when it reached the top.

From the videos below, those of us at Shults Ford of Harmarville can see what a time consuming and difficult project this was.  This Michigan-based company built a mockup of the freight elevator, and then practiced the cuts on a second pre-production Ford Mustang convertible.  They were ready when it came time to make the cuts on the Mustang being taken to the top.

The result certainly is astounding!  What better way to celebrate the past 50 years of greatness?
