Employees Build Playground Area for Local Children
Auburn Hills, Mich., May 12, 2006 –
WHAT: More than 100 Chrysler Group employees will roll up their sleeves and work together to build a playground for the Delray Neighborhood House in southwest Detroit.
Delray House is a community center that provides social and educational resources for the southwest Detroit community, including computer labs, health and welfare courses, field trips and summer camp. The center serves more than 600 youth.
The Chrysler Group and Chief Executive Officer Tom LaSorda are leading efforts to enhance the Delray House and the resources it offers the community. Last year, the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund donated a 2006 Dodge Sprinter to the center for transportation and $112,000. The Chrysler Group volunteers will save the Delray House $60,000 in expenses.
