Ford and its Dealers Contribute to Oklahoma Tornado Relief, and You Can Help Too

“The impact of these tornadoes is devastating on thousands of families,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services. “We know there is great need for assistance, and Ford, its dealers and employees are coming together to provide needed resources.”

Ford Motor Company and its dealers will contribute $400,000 to assist with relief efforts for those affected by tornadoes this week in Oklahoma. Ford Motor Company Fund will match donations up to $250,000 made through this link,, from its employees, dealers and the public in support of relief efforts by the American Red Cross.

The Oklahoma Ford Dealers group is contributing $150,000 to the United Way. Ford Motor Company also is donating a Ford Transit Connect van to the American Red Cross, and providing $500 for drivers with tornado-damaged vehicles in affected areas toward the purchase of a new Ford vehicle.

“Oklahoma Ford dealers encourage everyone to step up to help those impacted by these devastating tornadoes,” said Craig Billingsley, chairman of the Oklahoma Ford Dealers. “We know how much this tragedy is impacting our customers, neighbors and friends.”

Ford Motor Company is an active partner in the Red Cross Disaster Responder program. Through this program, a select group of companies pledge donations on an ongoing basis in advance of major disasters, which helps the Red Cross ensure an immediate response to meet the needs of those affected by disasters. Ford Motor Company has partnered with the American Red Cross for more than 30 years.
