Sherwood Ford Community Event Recap for November 2019

We’re so fortunate here at Sherwood Ford to be able to support the community that we live, work and play in. The people of Edmonton, Strathcona County and all surrounding areas mean the world to us, which is why we’re proud to show you our community event recap for November 2019 – it was quite the busy time for us, but rewarding in every way!

Stuff-A-Giant-Truck & Test Drive Events

Throughout November, we helped partner with the Strathcona County Christmas Bureau and OilersNation for our annual Stuff-A-Giant-Truck event, where we encouraged those in the Edmonton metro area to come to our dealership and donate supplies into one of our F-150s. It was a huge success, as we were able to fill the truck and deliver it to the bureau with plenty of smiles.

Strathcona County Christmas Bureau Hamper Donation 

Together with volunteers from OilersNation, our team also helped to build and assemble hampers for over 500 Strathcona County families. All told, our total donations to the Strathcona County Christmas Bureau totalled $2,200! The organization’s overall goal is $100,000, and if you’d like to make a donation, we encourage you to head over to their official website – thank you in advance!

Sherwood Ford & OilersNation Movember Campaign 

Anxiety, testicular cancer, prostate cancer and suicide are issues that are all too common for men in our area, so our teams combined to put on a fundraising campaign for the Movember Organization. Throughout November, our Mo Bros were able to donate $1,400 towards the organization’s effort, and there’s still time to donate if you would like to do so. We’ve included a link to our campaign page here!

We Scare Hunger Heroes 

We partnered with Lakeland Ridge School for our annual We Scare Hunger program, and in total we were able to donate 850 items of food to the Strathcona Food Bank. We’d also like to say congrats to Lakeland Ridge’s own Penelope, a Grade 3 student who won tickets to an Oilers game for being our Hunger Hero. Great work, Penelope!

We also were able to team up with M.E. LaZerte school students from Edmonton, and the kids helped us donate Giant Customs F-150 loaded with food to the Edmonton Food Bank. Together with Ford of Canada’s Edmonton Ford Dealers, we brought in a grand total of over 17,000 pounds of food!

Santa Visits Beaners Fun Cuts for Kids 

Together with the Kinette Club of Edmonton and Beaner’s Fun Cuts for Kids, Sherwood Ford’s own Santa Claus visited the barbershop and helped give many lucky kids from Edmonton Norwood Elementary School some awesome makeovers. Being able to brighten these kids’ days is always one of the most rewarding parts of the year for our team!
