Olathe Ford Lincoln in the Community

Toys for Tots 2017

Every year, we participate in Toys for Tots, which is a program that collects toys for children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. We added a little competition between departments to see who could donate the most toys and in doing so, collected over 250+ toys.

Halloween Costume Drive & Trunk-or-Treat to benefit KidsTLC

During the month of October, we collected new and gently used Halloween costumes for KidsTLC. Costumes were all donated before their Halloween events, so the kids could have a "shopping day" and pick out their costume!

The costume drive was followed up with a Trunk-or-Treat on Halloween. Our employees decorated trunks & handed out candy to all of our visitors. Many children & dogs, all in costume, came by to celebrate. Food & beverage sales were donated to KidsTLC.

All Ford Show to Benefit Ronald McDonald House of KC

We hosted the Mid-America Falcon's Club for an All Ford Car Show in June. The car show turned out great with food trucks, a DJ, prize drawings and a raffle. All proceeds from show registration were donated to Ronald McDonald House of KC, along with $100 per vehicle sold and $5 per oil change that day. Pictured with a check for $2,884 is Jim Boyer with the Falcon Club, Tara Adler with RMHKC and Hannah Cliche with Olathe Ford Lincoln. 

Backpack to School for Olathe School District

Each summer, our employees help the Olathe School District fill backpacks for Olathe's most vulnerable students. All types of school supplies filled backpacks for students whose families may not be able to afford new supplies for the upcoming year.

Driven to Give with Blue Valley Southwest Boy Soccer

We hosted a Driven to Give event with Blue Valley Southwest Boys Soccer. Many Lincoln vehicles were waiting at the school on a Saturday morning, ready for test drives. For every test drive, $20 was donated to the soccer team. If the test drivers chose to take a bonus test drive, an addition $20 was donated. Pictured is Olathe Ford Lincoln's, Hannah Cliche, presenting head coach, Jason Pendleton with a check for $2,270. BVSW Boys Soccer finished their season 17-0-1 and were the 5A State Champs!

Water Drive for Hurricane Relief

After the effects of recent hurricanes, Olathe Ford Lincoln's, Corbin Haas, organized a Water Drive. He collected cases of water and money to purchase water, that was then all donated to Heart to Heart International and brought south to the victims. 3,660 bottles of water were donated. Corbin is pictured here with 2 Heart to Heart employees after they unloaded two full truck beds of water into their warehouse.

Cup Ringer Sponsors for KidsTLC Open

We were the Cup Ringer Sponsors for KidsTLC's annual golf tournament this year, along with the hole-in-one sponsors. We had the cup ringer pictured here on every hole as well as a 2017 Lincoln MKC up for grabs if anyone was lucky enough to get a hole-in-one on hole 8. The KidsTLC open is one of their largest fundraising events throughout the year and we are happy to be partnered with them.

Angel Car to benefit KidsTLC

Rather than your typical Angel Tree, we created an Angel Car for the children at KidsTLC. Each child had an angel on one of our vehicles with 3-4 gifts they were wanting for Christmas. We successfully had every angel "adopted" meaning every child that currently belongs to KidsTLC received the gifts they asked for!

Book Drive to support KidsTLC

We organized a book drive to collect new and gently used books for KidsTLC and had great success. Over 300 books were donated for the kids!

Art Unleashed to benefit the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City

We were sponsors of Art Unleashed which is an art show that raises money for the Humane Society. Pictured here is three of their volunteers with just a few of the adoptable dogs that were at the event.
