Ford Motor Company Fund is teaming up with North Carolina and South Carolina dealerships to distribute over 230,000 medical-grade face masks in neighborhoods across the greater Charlotte area today (2/18) from 9 am to 5 pm (as supplies last).
Ford Fund is partnering with eight local Ford dealers to distribute masks to the community. Residents are invited to stop by any distribution site to pick up 20 disposable face masks while supplies last.
The Mask Donation Day is part of Ford’s #FinishStrong initiative – a public call to action encouraging Americans to pull together, protect each other and help save lives in the months ahead until COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available. In addition to Charlotte, Ford is also hosting Mask Donation Day events in Kannapolis, Mooresville, and Gastonia, including Rock Hill and Fort Mill in South Carolina.
Since August 2020, Ford and Ford Fund, the company’s philanthropic arm, have delivered more than 70 million masks to nonprofit organizations, state and local officials, first responders, schools, community groups, and Ford dealerships in all 50 states. Ford will hit its goal of producing 120 million medical-grade masks for donation to at-risk communities by mid-2021.
