“The UAW-Ford is proud to help address critical needs, such as breast cancer screenings, for our community and members,” said Jimmy Settles, UAW-Ford vice president. “Helping to bring awareness to, and provide funds for, important issues such as early breast cancer screening and detection is vital to our commitment to serve our community.”

Due to recent construction, please use the following driving instructions to access the building: Take Griswold South, and make a left turn onto the E.
