Villa Ford has officially launched a program called ‘Community Connect’ to serve as the dealership’s outreach program supporting local athletic associations, universities, high schools and non-profit associations. With a mission statement of ‘Supporting What Makes Us Better’, the program is designed to continue the support of organizations providing education and medical assistance, along with athletic opportunities and entertainment to the surrounding community.
General Manager Scott Wade said this effort to contribute to local schools and organizations that their customers are directly involved with is a reflection of the entire Wilson Automotive Group - of which Villa Ford is a part. “The words of famed statesmen Sir Winston Churchill when he said, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,’ sum up the David Wilson corporate spirit,” noted Wade.
The list of those benefiting from Villa Ford ‘Community Connect’ reaches across and beyond Orange County: Los Angeles Angels, Orange County Mustang Club, Concordia University, Villa Park High School Football Boosters, Villa Park High School, Passionately Pink - Susan G. Koman, Lifestream Blood Bank, Buena Park High School, Canyon High School, El Dorado High School, El Modena High School, Esperanza High School, Santa Ana High School, Sierra Preparatory Academy, Yorba Linda Middle School, Christ Lutheran School, Life Without Limits - United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County and Katella High School - Girls’ Basketball
