Last year, Ford and Lincoln dealers gave back $89 million and 654,240 in volunteer hours to their local communities. We at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford are immensely proud to be part of that number, and we are excited to continue our efforts throughout this year as well.
In Ford’s Survey on Dealer Giving, 96 percent of dealerships responded saying they financially supported local causes in 2013, while 86 percent reported staff getting involved in the community in a more personal way by volunteering their time.
“The amazing results illustrate the breadth of giving from our U.S. dealers – both to local causes and nonprofits around the world,” said Edsel B. Ford II, a member of Ford’s Board of Directors and overseer of the Salute to Dealers awards program. “These dealers’ passion for making a difference in the lives of their customers and their communities is a value they pass on to their employees and future generations.”
Shults has had the privilege of supporting various community activities in the past year, including a Christmas tree sale to benefit Junior Achievement programs in schools throughout western Pennsylvania and our Junior Yee Haw visit to the Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital.
Speaking of Yee Haws, have you recorded yours lately? We’re in the middle of our Sweet $25,000 Yee Haw Contest. Don’t miss this opportunity to record a special, Shults-of-a-kind “Sweet” Yee Haw before Valentine’s Day and the chance to win $5,000. We’ll also donate $5,000 to charity.
We hope to see you soon when you record your sweet Yee Haw; and be sure to stop by and say hello when you see us around town!
