The Hands On Nashville Urban Farm is made possible by the helping hands of hundreds of volunteers, generous financial supporters, and… the farm truck. HON staff members spend a lot of time hauling compost, tools, materials, and more around Nashville in a truck generously donated by Ford Motor Company.
Beyond making the complex logistics of the Urban Farm Program more manageable, Ford Motor Company is also committed to engaging its employees in volunteerism. From adapting toys for kids with disabilities served through Technology Access Center to preparing new garden beds at Hands On Nashville’s Urban Farm, Ford employees are making a difference in the community.
“In the words of our Executive Chairman Bill Ford, ‘A good company delivers excellent products and services. A great company does all that and strives to make the world a better place,’” said Evelyn Sanders, Director of Ford Motor Credit’s Nashville Business Center. “We are grateful to all the Strobel nominees for making Middle Tennessee an even better place for all of us.”
Ford Motor Company is the Founding Sponsor for the Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards.
