November and December 2018 Community Event Recap at Sherwood Ford

This time of the year never fails to keep us busy, as it feels like there’s always something going on in the Edmonton community. Our Sherwood Ford team was proud to be able to sponsor and partner with plenty of amazing organizations for the last couple months; come with us as we take you through our November and December 2018 Community Event Recap!

360 Fitness Sponsorship 

We first sponsored a Personal Training event at Sherwood Park’s 360 Fitness gym in an effort to support the Sherwood Park Little Warriors program. This organization is dedicated to awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse, and all told, over $2,500 was raised for Little Warriors! Way to go 360 Fitness!

We Scare Hunger Food Drive Winner 

In October, as part of the We Scare Hunger Food Drive program, we partnered with Lakeland Ridge School to donate canned food to locations all over the area. We then held a drawing for one lucky Lakeland Ridge student to attend an Oilers game on November 27th. The winner was Banan Lindsay from Class 5-1, who got to watch as our boys shut out the Dallas Stars, 1-0, in overtime. Congrats, Banan!

Stuff-A-Giant Truck and Test Drive Events for Strathcona County Christmas Bureau 

As previously mentioned, all throughout November we put on our annual Stuff-A-Giant Truck and Test Drive events for the Strathcona County Christmas Bureau. Members of our staff (as well as some awesome guests) was able to deliver a full Ford Super Duty truck’s worth of toys to the bureau, along with a cheque for $3,310 in test drive donations. Overall, we’d call this a GIANT success!

Volunteers at Sherwood Ford gathered around gift bags and hampers

Strathcona County Christmas Bureau Hamper Donation

This isn’t where our support of the Christmas Bureau stopped, however. Our dealership’s volunteers also helped to assemble gift and food hampers for 500 families in the Sherwood Park area, which we were then able to donate to the organization. It always feels great to make the holiday season that much better for a family in need!

Silent Auction Sponsorship for Sherwood Park Vikings 

We love being able to sponsor the local youth hockey clubs in Sherwood Park, and on November 29th we were able to do just that. A silent auction benefited the Sherwood Park Vikings, and it was certainly a great and fulfilling experience for all who stopped by! Go Vikings Go!

Silent Auction Donation for Edmonton Kinettes Club 

On December 1, the Edmonton Kinettes Club held a silent auction to benefit its Cuts for Christmas program, and we donated some of the items that were bid with over $14,000 raised. Grade six students from Norwood School were invited to Beaners Fun Cuts for Kids in Sherwood Park on December 3 for a makeover. Our very own Santa then surprised the kids with a visit to the school on December 17, where we helped distribute gifts to 265 elementary school students! What a wonderful attitude of gratitude from everyone!
