October is now the season of giving - with Ford launching a national campaign to strengthen communities. The We Scare Hunger
event (which runs from the 1st to the 31st) provides relief to those in need, partnering with local food banks to ensure healthy meals for families. More importantly, it also offers hope for the holidays.
Key West Ford wishes to bring that hope to our city - which is why we’re proudly participating in the We Scare Hunger
event. Throughout the month we’ll provide our customers with easy ways to donate to New Westminster:
Initiative One: The WE Organization
Key West Ford and the WE Organization are joining forces for the We Scare Hunger
event - seeking to inspire youths and empower communities. Throughout October we’re asking students to donate their time, energy, and canned goods to this worthy cause.
Who Can Participate: Any school group (including sports teams, extracurricular clubs, or homeroom classes).
When: October 1st to October 31st.
How: All groups must first register with our team (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for eligibility requirements). Then they must collect as many dry and canned goods as possible, taking care to track their donation intakes on their official We Scare Hunger posters.
Why is this important? To show our gratitude, Key West Ford will give $1,000 to the winning school - as well as movie passes to each participating student from that school. We believe that generosity should be rewarded, and we wish to thank those who rallied for this event.
It’s crucial, therefore, to keep an accurate tally of all donations. Each poster will be collected at the end of the month and our team will calculate the results - announcing the winners on November 3, 2017.
When: All filled boxes will be picked up by one of our staffers each week.
Initiative Two: Help From The Hyacks
In addition to our partnership with the WE Organization, we’re also teaming with the NWSS Hyacks - a football club that will help us score a victory against hunger.
We encourage our customers to visit Mercer Stadium during each Hyacks home-game (October 13th, 7:30 p.m.; October 20th, 5:00 p.m.). Those who provide a dry good donation will receive free entry at the gate, as well as assist the efforts of local food banks.
The NWSS team is also participating in our WE Organization initiative and challenges every on-field rival to do the same.
Initiative Three: Driver Drop-Offs
While We Scare Hunger is intended to bring students together across the Lower Mainland, we hope that their parents will also join the fight. Key West Ford will host a drop-off box in our showroom so that our customers may participate in this event. We welcome all donations, including:
Canned Fish, Chicken, or Turkey.
Canned Black Beans, Chickpeas, or Kidney Beans.
Nuts and Seeds.
Natural Peanut Butter.
Brown Rice, Barley, or Whole Wheat Pasta.
Powdered Skim Milk.
Please bring these items to our showroom.
October is no longer just for tricks and treats. It’s instead a time to offer relief to those who need it most. To learn more about how your efforts will impact New Westminster families contact us
