Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) hosted three Habitat for Humanity affiliates for World Habitat Day activities at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. More than 100 FCA employees volunteered their morning to build sheds for Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County, wheelchair ramps for Macomb County Habitat for Humanity and picnic tables for Habitat for Humanity Detroit to support future Habitat homebuyers throughout the tri-county area.
FCA employees also donated household items to metro-area Habitat ReStores, which are non-profit home improvement outlets and donation centers that sell new and gently-used donated items to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to support the Habitat mission. This event provided an opportunity for all three affiliates to work together, and allowed them to collectively thank FCA for their long history of support. In addition to significant funding, FCA has engaged over 1,500 volunteers on Habitat projects in Oakland and Macomb counties and the City of Detroit.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, also known as FCA, is an Italian-controlled multinational corporation and currently the world’s seventh-largest automaker
