For Immediate Release
Food for Life appreciates the generous donation by Ford of Canada which will allow for the distribution of hand sanitizer to local Food for Life partner organizations.
Halton ON – Through the generous support of Ford of Canada, more than $100,000 worth of hand sanitizer will be distributed to Food for Life partner organizations through the Halton and Hamilton region.
“Supporting our local communities has always been a part of what we do at Ford of Canada,” said Bev Goodman, president, and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd. “We’re pleased to be donating $100,000-worth of hand sanitizer to an organization like Food for Life who will distribute it where it’s needed most, across more than 80 community groups that it serves.”
The distribution of hand sanitizer to partner organizations ensures that community members not only have access to healthy food, but that they also have access to much-needed, and often costly, Personal Protective Equipment.
“Ford’s donation to Food for Life is a testament to the generous and cooperative nature of our community,” said Graham Hill, Executive Director of Food for Life. “We are honoured and thankful that Ford of Canada entrusted the team at Food for Life to ensure this sanitizer reaches the organizations who need it most.”
This most recent donation is not the first time Ford has stepped up to address food security across the region; each year a number of Ford employees support Food for Life by volunteering their time for food sorts as well as other activities.
Food for Life is a community leader in ensuring everyone has access to healthy food. GOOD food, impacting lives.
