The Rochester Area Ford Dealers are accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for a new van through the 2014 Ford Friendship Express program.
Applications and guidelines are available at www.RochesterAreaFordDealers.com under the “local events” tab. All applications from organizations in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario and Wayne counties must be received by Dec. 30 to be eligible for consideration for the 2014 program. Send completed applications to: Ford Friendship Express Program, 50 Fountain Plaza, Suite 1000, Buffalo, NY 14202.
The van recipient will be announced at the Rochester International Auto Show in late February. To date, the Ford Friendship Express program in Rochester has donated more than a dozen vans valued at nearly $350,000.
