Dealers donate time, services and goods
Article from Automotive News | Written by Whitney McDonald
In Kent, Wash., south of Seattle, Bowen Scarff Ford-Lincoln started a GoFundMe drive on its website in mid-March called “Help Local Hardworking Nurses.” The donations are used to buy snacks that are delivered to nurses’ break rooms at four hospitals near the dealership. As of May 13, $15,536 has been raised.
Dealership owner Mark Scarff makes daily trips to area grocery and warehouse stores and takes the goods back to the dealership showroom to be packaged into bags for delivery.
The first deliveries were made to Valley Medical Center on March 23. The dealership also is delivering food to nurses at MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, MultiCare Covington Medical Center and Highline Medical Center.
From snacks for nurses to groceries for older people, dealers are doing what they can to support their communities during the pandemic.
“We want to say thank you and we appreciate everything you’re doing,” Bowen Scarff General Manager Paul Ray said. “It’s the nurses and doctors right now that are really the heroes of all this.”
