Chrysler’s Christmastime Charity: Inspiring Holiday Cheer
‘Twas the week before Christmas
When all through Auburn Hills, Michigan,
Faithful Chrysler employees were working
But not on cars, trucks, and SUVs again
Instead they spent their time
Out delivering toys
To generous charities
For good girls and good boys
That’s right—leave it to Chrysler to make our spirits bright. Employees have been hard at work, even putting in overtime to help deliver toys and other merchandise to local charities that will then distribute those toys to children in need in the counties of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne. These charities include the Coalition on Temporary Shelter, Toys for Tots, Oakland Family Services, The Salvation Army of Macomb, Focus: HOPE, and Latin Americans for Social and Economic Development.
“We strive to make serving the community part of our everyday mission at Chrysler Group,” commented Head Elf, Jody Trapasso (also the Senior Vice President of External Affairs at Chrysler Group LLC and President of The Chrysler Foundation). “We’re humbled that, once again, our employees and dealers have generously given to help make the holiday season happy and bright for their neighbors.”
But Santa’s helpers aren’t just making a difference in Michigan. The spirit has stretched to Chrysler’s Toledo Machining Plant in Ohio, Chrysler Canada’s Windsor Assembly Plant, Chrysler Group’s Mid-Atlantic Business Center, and Ram Truck’s Southwest Business Center in Dallas, Texas, as well as Chrysler dealers across the country.
Chrysler’s Christmastime charity donations of time, money, and effort are truly inspiring. Again and again, Chrysler proves to be one of the leading automakers for treating people like people, and not just potential sales.
