Randall Reed’s Planet Ford is proud to make newspaper headlines with Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) for their community toy and food drive to help area families in need. “Drives like these are especially important with so many still needing assistance after the effects of Hurricane Harvey,” said John Centner, General Manager of Planet Ford in Humble. The storm has left many residence living in temporary living situations, seeking out new employment and in need of a helping hand.
Every year, HAAM works extra hard at the holidays to not only gather food and funds, but kick off an annual toy drive called The Empty Stocking Toy Drive. The Planet Ford is providing and accepting donations to help replenish the charity’s depleted food and holiday resources.
Also helping HAAM is a special school Planet Ford has worked with over the years, MOSAIC Transition Program at The Cambridge School. Several students have made it a holiday miss to help provide during the Christmas season.
