Giving Back with LJF and Ford

At Leif Johnson Ford, we are committed to making a difference and bettering our community. We are always looking for new ways to give back to different local causes, and are truly passionate about helping those in Austin and beyond.

Currently, we are partnering with Susan G. Komen in the fight against breast cancer, and local elementary schools with Earning by Learning. Whether it be raising funds for cancer research or helping kids learn to love reading, we are honored to do whatever we can to be a resource for others.

Ford Motor Company is also passionate about helping their community. Each year, Ford Volunteer Corps performs more than 112,000 hours of work on community service projects around the world, and Ford Driving Skills for Life is a driving program that helps teens develop necessary driving skills.

Ford also values sustainability, and creates vehicles that will better our environment. They are working hard to reduce vehicle emissions in the vehicle product lineup, and believe in finding suppliers who share that same goal. From a global water management initiative, which has decreased our water usage by 61%, to creating 18.5 million vehicles with environmentally-friendly soy foam, Ford truly cares about protecting our planet.  They have even created PACE, or Partnership for a Cleaner Environment, to increase green efforts. PACE focuses on water and energy conservation, and reducing waste, carbon dioxide and air emissions. Due to current suppliers partaking in this program, carbon emissions could be reduced by 500,000 metric tons worldwide during the next five years! Ford has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere for eight years in a row.

Ford is on a mission to make the world a better and greener place, and we at Leif Johnson are so proud to be right there with them.
