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.
