Ford to donate $10M to aid Detroit jobs

DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. is donating $10 million to Detroit and several nonprofit groups to help bring job training, business development, and other services to the southwest part of the troubled city.

Officials said Tuesday that the money will fund a community center in the Mexicantown neighborhood that will offer training, a business incubator, and a food bank. Ford also will pay for a summer camp, jobs programs, and other community projects, they said.

Mark Fields, Ford’s chief operating officer, said Detroit’s health is important to the company, even though Ford is based in suburban Dearborn.
