Fill a 50

In celebration of the Ford F-Series being America's best-selling truck for 42 years, during April Bill Colwell Ford will be hosting Fill a 50 and collecting items for Friends of the Family. The organization provides advocacy services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, human trafficking and homelessness. Bill Colwell Ford is asking the Cedar Valley community to bring in items to help them fill the bed of an F-150, or Fill a 50. For each item donated, you can register in a drawing for a chance to win a free auto detail or oil change at Bill Colwell Ford. The winner will be announced May 2nd. 

The mission of Friends of the Family is to provide safe shelter, confidential services, and housing assistance to individuals in crisis due to homelessness, domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. They take pride in their advocacy efforts, which began in 1992. Over the years, they have expanded their organization to aid people in 20 Iowa counties thanks to generous donations and strong leadership from their staff and Board of Directors.
