Here is the key to receiving a free ticket to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix: Donate any three non-perishable food items to a local Valley Ford dealership during the Ford Operation Goodwill Phoenix food drive from Oct. 22 to 31. Then redeem your ticket at the museum during December.
Ford Motor Company, St. Mary’s Food Bank, and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix are partnering to help the hungry throughout Arizona. Ford is also sponsoring “Ford Technology and Innovation Month” at the museum, featuring an exhibit with activities and innovations themed around the enterprising spirit of Henry Ford.
Last year, local Ford dealers were able to collect more than 5,000 pounds of food for United Food Bank in Mesa. The nonprofit also received a refrigerated F-550 truck from Ford Motor Company in 2009.
The goal this year is 6,000 pounds of food. Drop items off at one of the following locations:
