On Friday August 17th from 11am – 3pm Hassett of Wantagh invites our fellow Long Islanders to participate in the 2013 Ford Escape Hunger Drive. Stop into our dealership during those hours and help support Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, who has teamed up with Ford Motor Company to try and eliminate hunger in the US. Hassett of Wantagh is proud to participate in this event that is designed to provide more than 1.2 million meals to those less fortunate. For each guest that attend’s Friday’s event, Ford will make a donation to Feeding America that could be equivalent to 40 meals for starving folks around the United States.

Here is more info about Feeding America:

  • US’s largest hunger-relief charity (non-profit)
  • helps 37 million Americans each year (14 mil children & 3 mil seniors)
  • more than 200 member food banks support 61,000 agencies that address hunger

As per the title, Ford will be bringing a brand new 2013 Ford Escape to our dealership during the 11am – 3pm time slot in order to explain some of the advanced features that this model offers such as the automated liftgate and EcoBoost engine technology. This is the first Escape to transfer to the new global platform which has benefited other models like the 2013 Ford Focus and Fiesta. Those in attendance will notice that the front fascia and grille of the Escape now has a streamlined design which is part of Ford’s new aesthetic.

Participants that attend the 2013 Ford Escape Hunger Drive at Hassett of Wantagh can register and enter a sweepstakes to win a brand new 2013 Ford Escape. Imagine being able to help out those in need while winning a new SUV at the same time!
