Ford Global Week of Caring
Ford Motor Company is one of the most well known automotive industries. It has a long standing history and because of this the company reaches out to do a lot for the community. They have had great success in the car making business so they in return give back and help people around the world. This year Ford is striving to expand its outreach efforts. Ford service projects will be expanded into the Middle East. They will be increasing their efforts in correlation with the Ford Global Week of Caring.
The Ford Global Week of Caring is just another way that Ford and its employees strive to further improve the quality of life for people in the communities they live and work in. For example, next week 20 Ford employees from South Africa’s Struandale Engine Plant will spend a day converting a metal shipping container into a soup kitchen that will be able to serve 500 people a weak. In total, Ford has over 13,000 volunteers from all over the world that will put in over 81,000 hours of service to improve their communities. This is the ninth annual Global Week of Caring and each year they are able to expand the program. This year the president of Ford Middle East and Africa will be leading volunteers from a new international business unit on a beach clean-up project in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The teams have done incredible things like improve homes that after abandoned children with HIV, help provide physical therapy for those with disabilities, help plant vegetable gardens for older adults and more. Ford Global Week of Caring is also contributing $348,000 to nonprofit agencies to purchase tools, supplies and other needed materials. They are putting a special emphasis on supporting and protecting water resources all over the world.
It is admirable to see a company that has a week dedicated to this kind of service. It is important for companies to use their wealth to help the community that has helped make their work possible.
