Help our community Fill a FORD for KIDS!

Washtenaw Federal Credit Union, Gene Butman Ford, and UAW Local 898 have joined forces to help support HOPE Clinic in Ypsilanti! These organizations recognize the important role that Hope Clinic has in the Ypsilanti Community and they wanted to work together to collect donations for the clinic. After several meetings with staff at the clinic it was determined that there is a need for school supplies and dental supplies for the children, thus their Fill a FORD for KIDS campaign was born! Gene Butman Ford has generously offered to supply vehicles to place throughout the community at four separate locations on Saturday June 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for residents and supporters to drop off their donations! Vehicles will be located in the Target parking lot on 3749 Carpenter Road (just North of Ellsworth), in the UAW Local 898 parking lot on 8975 Textile Road, in the Key Bank parking lot in Downtown Ypsilanti at 301 W. Michigan Avenue, and at Gene Butman Ford 2105 Washtenaw Avenue. Volunteers from each organization will be at each location to help collect donations throughout the day. You may also deliver any donations to either of Washtenaw Federal Credit Union’s offices located at 424 S. Mansfield (Michigan Avenue and Mansfield intersection) or 1861 Whittaker Road (across from Kroger) anytime up until this Friday June 17th! Thank you so much for your support and for helping these organizations support Hope Clinic! We hope to see you Saturday!
