Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford believes it is key to give back to the great Garland community that we are so proud to be part of. April 30th is Garland Gives Day. It will be hosted by Leadership Garland Class XXXV.
Prestige Garland is pitching in to lend a helping hand to provide and build more sturdy shelving for the Good Samaritans of Garland. the shelving needs to be reinforced so that it can hold more weight and efficiently utilize the space for canned goods. The picnic table areas outside of Good Samaritans are being cleaned up, as well.
During April, Prestige Ford in Garland (serving the greater Dallas – Fort Worth area) has been collecting canned goods from our wonderful dealership employees and customers as part of our “Fill A Ford – Canned Food Drive.” All of the donations and canned goods are being used to fill a new 2016 Ford F-150. The Ford truck will haul all of the much-needed donations to the Good Samaritans of Garland on at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 30th. We are collecting canned goods and donations through this Friday April 29th.
Garland Gives is a city-wide community service project that was founded by Leadership Garland Class XXXII in 2012. Since that time, it has become an annual tradition. Class members select tasks suggested by local non-profit organizations and spend a Saturday working on a project. Projects and tasks range from simple maintenance chores to collecting donations.

If you’ve visited Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland, TX (serving Dallas, Rockwall, Mesquite, Richardson) you’ve noticed the antique Ford from 1913. No matter the age, everyone is drawn to it.
Saturday April 23rd even more people had the opportunity to see the 1913 Ford Depot Hack. For the first time in a very long time, the cool car was taken outdoors and into the sun. It sat in the sun in the driveway of Louis and Kay Moore as part of the Historic Home Tour of Garland’s Heritage Day.
The home on South 11th Street was built in the same year 1913 as the classic Ford, as were two other homes on the tour and is part of the Travis College Hill Addition that was established in 1913. Louis and Kay Moore, long time customers of Prestige Ford in Garland, were eager to have the 1913 Ford Depot Hack on display during the tour. It was a hit and added a special touch to the 1913 aspect of the tour.
Prestige Ford enjoyed being part of the the special day honoring 125 years of Garland Heritage and the 100th Anniversary of the Bankhead Highway.
