When a city, state, or region finds itself in peril, it is often up to the community to join together and persevere. Sometimes that means rebuilding, or reorganizing, other times it can simply be for support – helping one another get through a tough time.
Following the events of last summer’s Hurricane Harvey landfall, which left $125 billion in damage to property, the community has stepped up in great response to one of the costliest natural disasters in United States history.
During a Texas is Family event earlier this year, local nonprofits joined Ford employees and Houston-area Ford dealers in supporting the ongoing recovery efforts throughout southeastern Texas and beyond. Here’s what resulted:
As Texas continues to heal from the disaster that was last year’s Hurricane Harvey, it is important to note how many organizations and ordinary people have come together in the wake of an event that changed the lives of so many. Ford Motor Company, through this generous donation, not only augmented the ongoing efforts there, but has begun to help officials prepare for the next storm or disaster.
Ford Motor Company’s dedication to helping those in need is not limited to disaster response. Houston is one of 26 markets in the United States or Puerto Rico where Ford and its dealers have expanded their commitment to meet community needs by collaborating on programs and non-profit outreach.
A country, state, or city is only as good as its community. Judging by the response to the Texas is Family event, the United States, Texas, and Houston all remain strong, in good times or bad.
