Mullinax Ford Partners with Operation Gratitude to Serve Our Troops

June 13th, 2013 The Mullinax Ford is partnering with Operation Gratitude to earn care packages that will be sent to our military members overseas as well as their family members, veterans, wounded warriors, and first responders.

Beginning June 13th, customers who come to any Mullinax Ford dealership and test drive a new car will earn one care package to be sent to a military member in his or her name. Each care package will be valued at around $100 and will include letters, snacks, and entertainment items.

Operation Gratitude’s slogan, “Going Further for Our Troops” is evident in this great event. Ford will assist Operation Gratitude with donations of up to 4,000 care packages.

The event coincides with Flag Day on June 14th, as well as the Ford company’s 100th anniversary on June 16th. “This event will give customers the opportunity to try out all of the latest and greatest Ford models, including the brand new 2013 Ford Escape, the new Ford Fusion Energi, or any of our other 2013 model cars and trucks, all while contributing to a great cause,” said Jerry Mullinax, Owner of Mullinax Ford.

Customers who come in to test drive a car or get their current car serviced will also have the opportunity to write letters of encouragement to military members that will be included in the care packages.
