    ·       From car parts to face shields, the Ford Motor Company has joined the growing number of businesses to shift focus and offer support to our front line health care workers.
    Yesterday a supply of plastic protective face shields recently produced in the Windsor Engine Plant were donated to the #SewStrong campaign by our friends at St. Thomas Ford Lincoln. We are truly thankful for their community support!
    Sporting the new face shields are Case Hoffer from the Columbus Club, who also worked at the former St. Thomas Ford Plant, Bruce Dumouchelle and John Stollery from St. Thomas Ford Lincoln and Paul Jenkins from the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce.
