PHOENIX - The Phoenix Metro Ford Dealers did a Food and Shoe drive with the 10 metro dealers from Nov. 1 through Nov. 18.
We collected thousands of pounds of food that was shared with St. Mary's Food Bank and we collected almost 3,000 pairs of shoes for "Walkaway Barefoot" an organization that provides shoes to people around the world who otherwise would go barefoot.
A staggering statistic is that over 1 billion people world-wide do not have shoes!
Our other key partner is the Children's Museum of Phoenix. We gave customers free admission to the museum for the month of December for each three food items or each pair of shoes donated. Featured with this article is a picture of a young man at the museum enjoying last year's event.
This was a great example of our local dealers giving back to the community!
