When Bess took over the operations at Gresham Ford in 2003, she was amazed at the warmth of the people and the eagerness with which the local community accepted an "outsider" from California.
Bess fell in love with the people of Gresham and began a crusade to help improve the lives in her new home. She soon realized the needs of the community were great so she started the "Contribute to the Community" program as a catalyst to inspire others to get involved. She is active with a variety of charitable organizations with a passion to help families that need a hand-up. She has worked with My Father's House, Snow Cap and Human Solutions to name a few.
The Contribute to the Communityprogram has touched and contributed to well over 250 local charities and non-profits.
The Contribute to the Community Program has a three pronged approach to serving the customers and community of Gresham Ford.
The first method began with Bess devoting entire weeks of radio and print advertising to champion specific charities she recognized as being particularly effective at meeting basic human needs. By soliciting contributions in her ads and sharing the second approach, the Gresham Ford tithe. Upon request, Bess donates 10% of customer service and parts purchases up to $100 per transaction, to the favorite charity of their choice.
