On Saturday May 7, 2016, Advantage Ford and Woodridge Ford teamed with Ford’s Drive 4UR Community non-profit programs. For every registered test drive that day, Ford Canada donated $20 to ME to WE (our chosen charity), Douglasdale elementary school (Woodridge’s chosen school) and Free the Children. We raised $1060 and Woodridge Ford raised $1700! And in light of recent events, Ford Canada matched those funds to donate to the Canadian Red Cross’ Fort McMurray relief efforts. That’s a total of $2760 going to our community and Free the Children and $2760 going to Fort McMurray! Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the sunshine with a free BBQ and fun activities for the kids and to support these amazing causes!
In December 2015, the Wood Automotive Group (which includes Advantage Ford, Woodridge Ford, Okotoks Ford, Big 4 Motors, Village Honda and Driverz Auto) launched its Christmas Kettle Campaign. From every vehicle sold at any of the above dealerships, a portion of the proceeds was donated to The Salvation Army Alberta & Northwest Territories Division.
Well, this morning Wood Automotive Group president and our dealer principle, Gerry Wood, and his family presented a $100,000 cheque to this wonderful non-profit!
Thank you to all those who purchased a vehicle from any of our dealerships that month as you directly contributed to this amazing donation! We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such a wonderful and giving community and we look forward to giving back more to our community throughout the year!
