DaimlerChrysler employees set to offer a helping hand

WINDSOR, Ont. — Freightliner Canada is teaming up with three other DaimlerChrysler Canadian operations to build relations in local communities.

DaimlerChrysler Canada, Freightliner Canada (including Freightliner Trucks, Sterling Trucks and Western Star Trucks), DaimlerChrysler Financial Services and Mercedes-Benz Canada and are offering employees up to one paid day-off to volunteer at local Habitat for Humanity builds this summer.

“We have dedicated and hard-working employees throughout our organization. In addition to the numerous charitable organizations we support across the country, we are excited to offer employees the chance to work together and take paid time off to share their skills and community spirit,” stated Steven Landry, president, CEO and Chairman of DaimlerChrysler Canada. “This is the first time four of DaimlerChrysler’s Canadian operations have worked together on a community outreach program and I can think of no better organization than Habitat for Humanity.”

Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping those below the poverty line become homeowners. A Habitat home gives families the opportunity to build equity, rather than spend a disproportionate amount of income on rental housing.
