Since 1895, the Ferman organization, and its employees, have positively influenced the people and communities they serve by demonstrating excellence in corporate citizenship through the Ferman Community Partnership.
Today, the values instilled by our founders guide Ferman’s charitable and philanthropic impact on the Tampa Bay area. We strive to continually make a difference in people’s lives through contributions of volunteer time and financial resources, and supporting our employees in their endeavors to make the Tampa Bay area a better place to live and work.
The types of organizations supported through the Ferman Community Partnership are as diverse as our community and include schools, educational and scholarship programs; health, medical and human services organizations; arts, cultural and history groups; civic, community events and fund drives; amateur youth sports and related activities.
The Mission of the Ferman Community Partnership
Enrich and improve the lives of men, women and children through philanthropy and active, personal involvement in the community.
Hundreds of Bay Area hopefuls stopped by the Ferman display to register for the tickets. Darrel Pettibone of Largo was this year's winning contestant. Darrel dropped by the newly remodeled, state-of-the-art showroom at Ferman Chevy-Tarpon Springs where he was presented with his tickets.
This year, General Manager John Reece put out a challenge that he would match his staff's donations. The extra motivation paid off in a big way. Not only did our team get into the giving spirit, they also had several Guests drop off donations as well!
All totaled, The Tarpon Springs Team collected 93 Boxes of Hope full of food, 45 turkeys and $175 in gift cards. That's over 2,500 pounds of food!
Metropolitan Ministries Associate Director of Donor Relations Nancy Dougherty expressed her sincere gratitude, stating that Metropolitan Ministries is blessed to have a great corporate sponsor like Ferman.
