Recent Events at Bob Sight Ford Remind Us Why We Love Our Community

It’s been a busy, inspiring couple of months for us here at Bob Sight Ford. From celebrating our 25th anniversary and hosting an insanely fun tailgating fundraiser event at Lee’s Summit North High School to coming together as a community to help those in need in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, a lot has been going on around here. Read on to learn more about recent events at Bob Sight Ford.

 

25th Anniversary Celebration

Can you believe it? We’ve been in the car-selling business for 25 years! On October 7th we hosted a great day of family fun to celebrate. The afternoon featured live music, tons of exciting activities, a giveaway, and more!

 

Tailgate 4UR School Event

We absolutely love giving back to a community that does so much for us. On October 6th we teamed up with Lee’s Summit North High School for a terrific day of fund raising for a wonderful school. The event featured food, games, music, and, of course, tailgating.

 

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma Donation Drive

In the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we we’re humbled to see our community in Lee’s Summit and Kansas City come together and generously help us collect supplies for those in need. After two successful donation drives, we were able to send a huge variety of supplies to help out those struggling with these natural disasters.

 

All of these events were reminders of why we love living and working amongst such a supportive community. From all of us at Bob Sight Ford, thank you!

Going Green: How Ford Accelerated Action Day Is Making a Difference

Clean LakeFord volunteers recently rolled up their sleeves to make the world a little greener during Ford Accelerated Action Day. Every year, Ford takes some time off to give back to various communities around the country, specifically working on eco-friendly projects. In addition to volunteering, Ford also gave more than $55,000 in grants to help fund various projects.

Ford put together a massive list of projects for Accelerated Action Day, ranging from a Lake Erie cleanup to landscaping and education programs. Over 20 different non-profit organizations participated in the events, and more than 700 Ford employees volunteered. In total, 49 projects were completed.

“Protecting our natural resources is a critical part of creating a better world,” said Janet Lawson, director, Ford Volunteer Corps. “We’re building and planting in sustainable ways and the e-waste recycling drive goes a step further to keep potentially hazardous electronics out of landfills.”

Ford also put together a massive e-waste cleanup project, collecting more than 75,000 pounds of materials from old computers, cell phones, and printers. Ford is also putting together a Ford Global Caring Month in September, cleaning up the environment and starting a long month of events. In fact, more than 30,000 volunteers are set to participate in over 1,700 projects across six continents.
