Ford Motor Company Fund has donated five Ford Transit vans to the American Red Cross, building on more than 30 years of jointly supporting disaster relief.

The new Ford Transit high-roof vans with 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engines were delivered to five locations in the US - Detroit, Michigan; Lexington, Kentucky; Louisville, Kentucky; Cleveland, Ohio; and Portland, Oregon.

Each year, the Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters of all sizes, from single-family house fires to widespread weather damage from tornadoes and hurricanes.

"The American Red Cross is often first on the scene to assist those in need, and these Ford Transit vehicles play an important role in helping them deliver food, water and medical supplies as quickly as possible," said Jim Vella, President, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.
