It’s that time of the year again: Christmas and the start of a new year. Phil Waterford would personally like to thank all of the fine customers that we have had the privilege of doing business with over this past year. These are still tough economic times for everyone and we thank you for your continued support! Waterford noted that because of the support of our community his North Main Street Ford dealership has been able to give back to the community in many different ways. From giving new cars to veterans and good Samaritans, helping all of our high schools raise money for the associated student body to hosting his annual free Christmas Eve breakfast that feeds hundreds of residents every year. Waterford also wants to help raise awareness for breast cancer by providing better educational outreach to high risk women. African Americans and Latinas are diagnosed at the same rate as Caucasian women, but have a 36% higher mortality rate.

Over the past couple of weeks, Waterford’s North Main Street Ford dealer has ship hosted a community charity sales event to support Susan G. Komen for the cure and raised over $5,000. “My mother is a breast cancer survivor and I want to do everything that I possibly can to raise awareness and ultimately find a cure for this despicable disease,” Waterford said. Phil Waterford’s Manteca Ford received recognition as the Spotlight Dealer in California for their tireless dedication and commitment to the community. Over 400 local residents were in attendance for the award ceremony honoring Waterford and his team for their continued philanthropy and for making a positive impact on humanity.
