Chrysler Making Summer A Little More Fun Building Bikes For Kids

DETROIT (WWJ) – They normally deal with vehicles on four wheels — but this time Chrysler is focusing on a two wheel project.

About 80 Chrysler employees are volunteering their time as they partner with Orchards Children’s Services in Southfield Saturday morning, to build cycles for needy kids throughout Southeast Michigan.

Speaking live on WWJ, Chrysler Spokeswoman Daphne Harris talked about how they plan to present the kids with their new bikes.

“Orchards will do a carnival for their clients on June 22nd and the bikes will be delivered to 400 happy kids on that day,” said Harris.

Harris says it’s not just one department in the company getting involved: “We have people from all of our functional areas – manufacturing, office workers … human resources, we are all here, not just our engineers.”

Harris says this is Chrysler’s third year participating in the bike project – the bikes will arrive complete with helmets and bike locks.
