Paris Ford LincolnParis Ford Lincoln will be giving away a total of $12,000 to 12 local United Way organizations during 2018. That’s $1,000 a month to a local organization in Lamar County.

The campaign, 12-12-12, will kick off today with public votes deciding which agency will receive $1,000 for the month of January. Check back each month to cast your vote for a new agency of the month for the remainder of the year. That’s 12 thousand dollars given to 12 agencies throughout 12 months. Welcome to the 12-12-12 campaign by Paris Ford Lincoln. As United Way of Lamar County would say, “Raised here, Stays here!”

Paris Ford Lincoln would like to recognize what a great job United Way does for the community and that they understand how difficult it can be to raise funds to provide the services that come from the agencies involved.

“We know that even a few extra dollars makes a huge difference. We support the efforts of UW and it’s important to us to be involved in the community as a local business,” said Henry Shaw of Paris Ford Lincoln. “We live, work and play here and it is our home. When you purchase a vehicle from us, we are in turn, able to reinvest dollars back into the community.”
“We are so appreciative of Paris Ford Lincoln for doing this. They have been donors for a long time and their employees are so active the campaigns we run. We’re thrilled about this campaign and we can’t wait to see all the votes come in!” said United Way of Lamar County Executive Director, Jenny Wilson.
