Fiat Chrysler Employees Join with Habitat for Humanity to Celebrate #WorldHabitatDay
Fiat Chrysler has been looking for a partnership for a while now. While it is potentially still looking for a carmaker to help make its mid-sized cars, it has found another partnership that some might think is more important. The Italian-American carmaker recently joined forces with Habitat for Humanity to celebrate World Habitat Day.
Employees from FCA US joined with Habitat for Humanity Detroit, Oakland, and Macomb affiliates to build picnic tables, storage sheds, and wheelchair ramps for use in homes across southeast Michigan.

“We are so thankful to begin the FCA US collaboration right here in our southeast Michigan region while bringing awareness to world housing needs,” said Sandy Pearson, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Michigan. “The Motor Citizens program keeps employees connected to the communities where they live and work, and Habitat for Humanity is proud to provide a platform and partnership for Motor Citizens in action.”
This isn’t the first time the two organizations have worked together. FCA US employees have been volunteering for Habitat for Humanity for a long time, building numerous new homes across the region. They have also donated household items to help restock Habitat for Humanity ReStores, which are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that help fund Habitat operations.
These donated items, including new and gently used furniture, appliances, home décor, and building materials, were delivered to the stores in the beds of Ram trucks.
