Ford Dealerships Team Up on 10th Annual Fill an F-150 Water Drive Benefiting The Salvation Army

Ford and its philanthropic arm, Ford Motor Company Fund, are teaming up with Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Phoenix, Valleywide Dunkin’ locations and Phoenix Rising FC to launch the 10th annual Fill an F-150 Bottled Water Drive and help The Salvation Army provide vital hydration throughout the hot summer months. 


From May 6 through May 22all 13 Metro Phoenix-area Ford dealerships are collecting cases of water to support The Salvation Army and its Emergency Disaster Services program, which provides hydration, respite and safety information to those in need at heat relief stations in Metro Phoenix on days with excessive heat warnings. According to Maricopa County Public Health, there were 252 confirmed heat-associated deaths in Maricopa County in 2021, with more cases still under investigation.


“The Salvation Army gives out nearly 1,500 bottles of water per day during Excessive Heat Warnings and thousands more bottles of water throughout the year to people such as first responders and those displaced by disaster,” said Maj. Tim Smith, The Salvation Army divisional secretary for Metro Phoenix. “We are very grateful to Ford, Hurricane Harbor, Dunkin’ and Phoenix Rising in helping us be ready with life-saving hydration for the tens of thousands of people who will need it this year.”


Both Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Phoenix and Phoenix Rising FC will provide a half-off general admission voucher to each person who donates at least one case of water (standard 16.9 oz., 24 or more bottles) at any metro Phoenix-area Ford dealership. The discounted daily admission vouchers are redeemable during the 2022 season. In addition, Dunkin’ will provide a coupon for one free medium coffee and one free classic donut redeemable (limit of one coupon per person; must donate 1 case of 24 or more bottles). Quantities for both offers are limited.


Ford’s goal is to collect 150,000 bottles of water in support of The Salvation Army. To date, the Ford Fill an F-150 water drive has collected approximately nearly 1 million bottles of water for The Salvation Army. Administered by the Ford Fund, Ford will jumpstart the drive with a $20,000 grant in support of the water drive and other vital Salvation Army programs. 


“This is our 10th annual water drive in partnership with The Salvation Army, which is very much in line with Ford’s mission to serve the communities where we do business and help those in need,” said Taylor Alumbaugh, customer experience operations manager for Ford Motor Company in Phoenix. “We hope our Ford customers – and those new to Ford – will stop by a dealership with their water donation and, in turn, get a little fun out of their donation with discounted admission to Hurricane Harbor water park, a Phoenix Rising soccer game, and a free tasty coffee and donut at Dunkin’.”
