MEXICO - During this difficult time, when the most vulnerable families in Mexico are looking for a way to deal with COVID-19, Ford of Mexico employees proudly joined the cause together with Ford Fund and listened to what the community needed. Together, we worked to collect food and supplies, which were delivered to people who cannot leave home and who have been affected by this pandemic both economically and emotionally.
"Proyecto México" is an initiative that is made up of a series of efforts, one of them is the collection of groceries, reaching the first delivery on May 21 with 460 bundles.
Thanks to the entire Ford family team, it was possible to carry out the task of supporting this noble work, spreading the word and contributing to the donation of groceries, carefully designed with products that contained a high nutritional value for families from 5 to 8 members.
"I want to thank all our team members for their participation in this initiative and for everything they do day by day to continue making Ford the engine that drives Mexico," said Héctor Pérez, President and CEO of Ford Mexico. “We understand that we live in challenging times, and we also believe that it is these moments that allow us to show the best of each one of us and at Ford, strong in our commitment with Mexico for the last 95 years, we have implemented actions that benefit the communities where we have a presence, placing as our main priority the safety and well-being of people ”.
We especially want to thank our supplier, the TAME Racing team, who always supported us from the conception of this project to safeguard, organize and distribute these pantries.
We will keep you posted as efforts are replicated in all our plants in Mexico very soon.
