October 2016 Fall Clean-Up

Ford Motor Company employees along with some local Canton Township residents spent a beautiful fall day helping the Partnership with fall clean-up tasks at the Village Arts Factory on October 14th. You could hear the sound of mowers, chain saws, weed whips and more buzzing all morning long! With over 35 people that participated, the before and after photos say it all! Thank you so very much for everyone that volunteered their time and efforts!


Ford Volunteer Corps Lends a Helping Hand

On September 16, 2016, eighteen people from Ford Motor Corps visited the Village Arts Factory to assist with a community beautification project. This was a Ford Accelerated Action Day dedicated to Community Life. Thank you Ford volunteers for helping paint in the new mural on our warehouse in Cherry Hill Village!


PCEP Art Club Mural

On Monday, August 15th, six students from the PCEP Art Club created a 100 foot grid on the north wall of our warehouse. Then they transferred their paper design to the building to produce a mural in black paint. Once finished they lettered the entire mural so that Ford Motor Volunteer Corps could paint in the mural with colored paint on September 16th. The Partnership would like to thank and congratulate these girls on a job WELL DONE!
