The new program is called “Cars 4 Classrooms” initiative and will be giving the opportunity to local PTAs and schools across the nation to make test drive fundraising events.  These events will feature both the Chrysler Pacifica Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.  For every participant that takes a test drive in the Pacifica, Chrysler will donate $10 to the school. 

“The Chrysler brand and its dealer network have worked with families and educators on test drive fundraisers in communities across America for more than 25 years,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of FCA’s Passenger Cars in North America.  “Through our partnership with National PTA, the goal is to give every school in every community the opportunity to thrive.  Every test drive in the all-new Chrysler Pacifica will help initiatives like after-school programs, new playground and technology updates.”

Chrysler Gives Back to Detroit with Life Remodeled Project

Most news that comes from Chrysler comes in the form of what new car are they working on, how much horsepower it will have, etc etc.  Chrysler is also notable for their charity work and this week joined together with the community of Detroit to participate in the Life Remodeled Project.

Over 400 employees from the Chrysler Group, along with workers from GM, came together to help with a project put together by the Chris Lambert, the found and president of Life Remodeled.  Thanks to the support of numerous organizations, including companies such as Chrysler and various nonprofits and churches, the Life Remodeled was about to aid Detroit’s Cody High School.

The project was able to clear 304 blocks in the Cody-Rouge area of debris.  The volunteers also boarded up hundreds of homes that were vacant, tear down two homes damaged by fires, and work on remodeling the Cody High School by working on issues big and small.  The school is getting a new roof, a new football field and will have new science and engineering labs installed for he students.

Chrysler’s contribution to the project included 10 vehicles, a thousand flowers and plants, and $12,000 to help rebuild a two-mile road.

Chrysler has been known to consistently contribute to the growth and maintenance of Detroit.  This is just another in a long line of ways they’ve given back to the community that has helped them so much.

Chrysler Employee Bikes Across US for Charity


Who doesn’t enjoy a good road trip?  I’ve made plenty of them across the state to enjoy a weekend away from the daily grind.  That being said, those trips typically take a couple of hours to accomplish.  I can’t even imagine what it would be like to make that kind of a journey on a bike.

That’s just what a Chrysler employee is doing.  Doug Meenan has joined with 25 other cyclists for the Journey of Hope campaign.  It’s a cross-country biking trip from the Golden Gate Bridge to Capitol Hill to raise money for charity.  The trip stated on June 9th and will the cyclists will reach their destination on August 10th.

While on the way to our nation’s capitol, the cyclists will be making various pit stops.  The stops will see them volunteering their time at local groups and other events that benefits people with disabilities.

The employees at the Belvidere Plant, Illinois have already provided Meenan with support.  “Many co-workers have donated and helped me with my fundraising,” he said.  “The union has been very helpful and has even given us the Union Hall to sleep at and plan on feeding us dinner when we ride into town on July 19th.”

Push America is the fundraiser for Journey of Hope and they help raise awareness for people with disabilities.
