Ford is teaming up with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation to sponsor The Ford Freedom Unsung “Heroes of Harvey” Awards. The goal of this tribute is to recognize individuals who have made tremendous efforts during the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts this past year. The honorees will be recognized for their achievements at a reception that will take place at the Bell Tower in Houston.
These awards were made possible thanks to a grant from Ford Motor Company Fund, which is a philanthropic extension of Ford Motor Company. Each award salutes and honors those who helped support the Houston community in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The honorees were nominated by residents of the Greater Houston Area.
“In the face of tremendous difficult, Houstonians came together to support each other and their community,” said Pamela Alexander, director of Community Development, Ford Motor Company Fund. “We congratulate the winners and are proud to honor their selfless acts.”
Ford and its dealerships, including West Point Lincoln, have taken part in other relief initiatives in the Houston area. It has donated more than $3.5 million to Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery efforts; donating 10,000 books to 10,000 children in need in partnership with First Book; and provided more than $100,000 in scholarships to 50 high school students.
