Landmark Ford Lincoln boosts Oregon Food Bank
Landmark Ford Lincoln is matching donations to the Oregon Food Bank to help meet increased demand caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
Until May 29, the Tigard dealership will double donations up to a total of $30,000 as part of the The Ford Fund Covid-19 Donation Match program.
"Feeding Oregon families is a critical need," said Jim Corliss, President of
Landmark Ford Lincoln. "We know that our customers and the community want to help. Hunger in our communities is skyrocketing. We can't turn our backs."
With more than 380,000 Oregonians having lost their jobs, the Oregon Food
Bank is facing 20% to 60% spikes in demand for hunger relief. The dealership is asking their customers and the
community to make cash donations to Oregon Food Bank. Ford will then match the local total. That means for every dollar donated, Oregon Food Bank will receive two dollars.
The Oregon Food Bank distributes food through a statewide network of 21 regional food banks and over 1,200 food assistance sites. The program has a dealership limit if up to $15,000, meaning the total contribution to Oregon Food Bank will be up to $30,000.
Donations are tax deductible and can be made by calling Landmark Ford Lincoln at 503- 639-1131. Donations can also be made in person seven days a week.
Landmark's showroom is open, the facilities are regularly sanitized, and the entire dealership is practicing social distancing.
In addition, Landmark Ford Lincoln has pledged $50 to Oregon Food Bank for each new or used retail vehicle sale during May, with no limit.
Landmark Ford Lincoln is located at 12000 S.W. 66th Ave. Tigard.
