Terry’s Ford in Peotone is proud to share with our readers that the Ford Motor Company has joined forces with Habitat for Humanity Detroit to meet a special milestone in the Morningside Commons neighborhood in Detroit: the construction of the 100th home build. The Detroit chapter of Habitat for Humanity launched an initial revitalization project in 2006 with the goal of rehabilitating or building more than 325 homes in a 16-block radius, including the Morningside Commons neighborhood. To assist them with meeting their goal, Ford has sent a fleet of 2013 F-150 trucks their way.
The Ford Motor Company has provided more than $3.5 million in grants to Habitat for Humanity since 1990, with almost half of those funds designated to Habitat projects in Detroit. Ford will help deliver supplies to the 100th home build site and the materials will be put into place by a host of volunteers, including members of the Ford Volunteer Corps.
Ford has a long-standing reputation for their commitment to making a difference in communities worldwide and for their dedication to volunteerism. More than 25,000 Ford employees, retirees, and dealers create the Ford Volunteer Corps that together engage in projects stretching across 30 countries.
In this particular commitment to serve, the heavy-duty workhorse we know and love as the 2013 Ford F-150 is of great assistance, as the building materials delivered will continue Habitat for Humanity Detroit’s efforts to improve the quality of life for low-income families in Detroit. Offering a maximum payload of up to 3,120 lbs. and a maximum towing capacity of 11,300 lbs, the F-150 is as able to step up to the challenge as the volunteers are eager to serve.
