The Ford Motor Company Fund has pledging a donation of $1 million to the American Red Cross. This will be used to facilitate workplace development training for veterans, military members and their families. It will also be utilized for disaster relief through the Red Cross Disaster Responder program.

In a two-year commitment, Ford's longstanding support of the American Red Cross has been expanded with 200 Blue Oval Scholarships for nurse assistant training in the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces program. The scholarships will allow veterans and their families to receive training for careers in Detroit, Atlanta, Washington DC, Nashville and Louisville.

The Red Cross nurse assistant training program equips trainees to achieve state-level certification as nurse assistants to obtain sustainable and competitive employment.

Recent government data showed that unemployment among post-9/11 veterans was at 9.7 percent, so the expansion of Ford's Red Cross partnership will provide deserving and their family members the chance to build new careers in the nursing field.

In addition, Ford donated two Transit Connect vans to support crisis response in Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
