Nearly every manufacturer offers a military discount, Ford included. In fact, Ford offers one of the most robust Military discounts in the industry, but Sanders Ford is taking its appreciation for the troops a step further through its partnership with Drive For Troops, a program of the North Carolina Automobile Dealer Charitable Foundation.
Beginning Memorial Day and continuing through the summer until Veterans Day, Sanders Ford will donate $50 for every vehicle sold. The Drive For Troops Campaign is a partnership between the NCADA Charitable Foundation and new car and truck dealers in North Carolina.
This isn’t the first time the NCADA Charitable Foundation in North Carolina has made a significant impact, as it has a history of doing some pretty incredible things. Through a Support Our Troops program in 2004, more than $250,000 was raised. In the 2010-2011, the NCADA flew more than 800 WWII veterans to visit their war memorials in Washington D.C.
We’ve seen first hand what the NCADA is capable of and we’re more than happy to do our part in contributing to this incredible cause. As a member of the North Carolina community, we feel a special responsibility to the men and women serving our country as the state is home to a military ocean terminal, five military bases, and a Coast Guard base. According to the Drive For Troops website, we also have more than 800,000 veterans living in our state, which is the 9th largest population in the country.
So when you’re shopping for a new car or truck in Jacksonville, NC, keep Sanders Ford in mind and know that your purchase will lead to a contribution to the Drive For Troops. You also can donate to Drive For Troops directly from their website.
