During the holiday season, we all like to help out those less fortunate than us. This year, Ford is helping the hungry by donating a new E-350 to the Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Club.
The Bed & Bread Club trucks head to neighborhoods throughout Detroit and distribute 5,000 meals a day to those in need. They provide a sandwich, fruit, a drink, soup, and a snack to help relieve hunger in Detroit.
“We’re proud to help the Salvation Army’s Bed and Bread Club travel to those in need, because hunger never takes a holiday,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services, in a statement. “By addressing the issue of hunger through other programs such as Ford Mobile Food Pantries, Ford Focus on Child Hunger and Meet Up and Eat Up, we are going further to create stronger communities.”
Ford’s truck donation is part of a combined investment of $1.3 million towards hunger relief across the country.
If you want to do your part, too, there are plenty of organizations here in New Mexico that will accept donations of food and time. For example, right here in Gallup, we have the Community Pantry, Care 66, Catholic Charities of Gallup, and more. Contact any of these organizations to see how you can help.
