Happy Holidays to the entire Detroit Chassis Community of Associates, Suppliers and Stakeholders,
This year has been immensely challenging for many reasons, but most of all because of the tremendous impacts the Covid 19 pandemic has had on our community.
We have been blessed. However, many in our community have lost health, employment and loved ones. We are saddened by the wide-spread suffering we see.
Rather than coming together for a holiday gathering as we have done in previous years, we, as a company, committed to marshal our resources in an effort to assist others in need. We decided to partner with three deserving community organizations, who have a well-established track record in serving basic community needs such as food, shelter and family: Gleaners, United Community Housing Coalition and The Children’s Center. Their services are in great demand. These organizations could not hold their traditional premier fund-raising events, so we sought to help fill the gap.
We partnered with UAW Local 155 to conduct a 2020 Charitable Giving Campaign with a commitment from our owners to match Associates’ giving. Our goal was $10,000. By the end of the 2020 Charitable Giving Campaign, which ran from Monday, December 7th through Friday, December 18th
We far exceeded our target by nearly 60%!
Our total raised is $16,935.00.
“Gleaners’ emergency response to the Covid-19 pandemic came swiftly and on a substantial scale, starting in March,” said Terry Collia, director of marketing with Gleaners Community Food Bank. “Given that our monthly food distributions have grown from around 3.5-4 million pounds of food, to nearly 7 million, the support of community partners like Detroit Chassis is essential. On behalf of Gleaners, I want to personally thank the Detroit Chassis team and look forward to your continued involvement with our mission.”
Detroit Chassis Avon partnered with UAW Local 2000, Unit 5, to raise $420.00 for the Genesis House Domestic Violence Center, which was also matched by the owners. In addition, they conducted a food-drive that collected two hundred forty-six (246) pounds of food for The Mission Services of Goodwill Food Pantry and gave the Marines, Toys-for-Tots a full box of new name-brand toys and a beautiful bike.
