Ford Motor Company donates face shields to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital

May 28, 2020

Last week, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital received a surprise delivery from Ford Motor Company. Contained in this unexpected shipment were 1,000 face shields!

We reached out to our local dealership, Matthews Ford, to say thank you. When we spoke to General Manager Mickey Blanford, he had his own words of thanks for the entire UHS Chenango Memorial team. He expressed his gratitude to all of them, as well as to their partners at Ford for both manufacturing and distributing these much-appreciated supplies to our local hospital.

"We at Matthews Ford are so proud to be a franchise partner for Ford Motor Company. Ford continues to demonstrate the true spirit of America. When America needs a hand, an American automobile company steps up to help," Mickey told us.

Thank you to Mickey and the entire Matthews team, as well as Ford Motor Company - from the manufacturing floor to the executive suite - for making sure our little rural hospital in upstate New York has the supplies we need to keep our staff, patients and community safe in these challenging times.
