You are very active in the community, and that’s been especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tell us about the work and why this is so important to you.
We love our community. While the current circumstances we face are challenging, it has been encouraging to see our community unite for the greater good during this time. We recognized a unique need that front-line workers were facing and realized we had the ability to meet this need. We connected with many essential businesses in our area to offer a free oil change, tire rotation, and vehicle inspection by our Mobile Service Team to those on the frontlines (pictured). Serving our community is important to us and in the words of Henry Ford, “Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
What value does Woody Anderson Ford gain from your Chamber investment?
Our Chamber investment allows us to partner with the Chamber in many ways that are extremely beneficial to our business. We believe the Chamber plays a vital role in the current and future success of our city and we consider it an honor to invest in and partner with the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber.
