Ford has already announced the details of the support it has extended to victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma in the United States. Now, the automaker, its dealer network, and its employees are teaming up to help provide relief to those in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria, and people in Mexico impacted by recent seismic activity.
The Ford Motor Company Fund is donating $100,000 to non-profit partners operating in Puerto Rico, and its regional arm will donate another $100,000, to help provide critical relief following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, which knocked out power across the island and damaged infrastructure after hitting the US territory on September 20th. Additional donations will come as the Ford Fund matches contributions to the American Red Cross, up to $300,000, for hurricane relief.
In addition, the Ford Fund is giving $200,000 to the United Way in Mexico, and will match up to $50,000 in employee donations to the Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund, in the wake of a devastating, 7.1-magnitude quake that hit the country on September 7th and a smaller 6.2-magnitude quake that struck just twelve days later. The Ford Mexico & Dealers Civic Committee is putting another $200,000 toward the United Way Mexico and rebuilding Ford Schools.
