We Scare Hunger at Marlborough Ford

Help our team at Marlborough Ford in Calgary AB stand up to hunger! Ford has teamed up with WE Day in an effort to enrich local communities for the better. This October, we set off to raise donations and items for local food banks through the We Scare Hunger initiative. No child should have to struggle with hunger, but together we can provide meals to those in need and work to end hunger in our neighborhoods.

We Scare Hunger in Calgary AB

Studies show that 36 percent of those helped by food banks are children, meaning a well-stocked cabinet can be the difference between a child staying healthy for school or getting sick and missing out. Since 2014, over 350,000 pounds of food has been donated and transported to food banks all over the country by participating Ford Dealerships, and we want to continue our goal of bringing filling meals to families and communities. By donating non-perishable food items to your local Ford, you can be part of the solution to hunger.

How Can You Help?

Throughout the month of October, Marlborough Ford will have pre-assembled $10 donation bags of food set up at our dealership. Stop by and buy a bag, and we will donate both the food and the money to our local food bank. Those who donate will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to a Flames hockey game! For those who would rather donate their own non-perishable food items, we have a collection area as well.
