Bill Colwell Ford "Fills a 50" for the Friends of the Family


In celebration of the Ford F-Series being America's best-selling truck for 42 years, Bill Colwell Ford hosted the Fill a 50 event. During the month of April, they collected items for the Friends of the Family. The organization provides advocacy services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, human trafficking and homelessness. Bill Colwell Ford asked the Cedar Valley community to bring items and help them fill the bed of an F-150, or Fill a 50. 

Some of the items they collected included garbage bags, toilet paper, cleaning products, laundry soap and much more. A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out and donated to the Fill a 50 event this year. A lot of items were raised for the Friends of the Family and it wouldn't have been possible without your help!

Once again, thank you to everyone who participated, your generosity is astounding!
