Chrysler Group LLC and United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM) are teaming up to fight against the epidemic of childhood hunger that has plagued the region in recent years. Chrysler Group is calling its more than 57,000 employees to tap their energy and the company's spirit of volunteerism to help the hungry and to spread understanding and utilization of UWSEM's programs.
"We are in a unique position – as a company that has been to hell and back – to provide a beacon of hope," said Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO. "We can choose to make a positive difference in the world. It's time for us to help generate a turning point within our community for people in need."
