It’s no secret that the The General’s home base that is Detroit, MI is in need of some upkeep. Well, maybe a little more than just some. Needless to say, any company that’s on track to post four straight quarters of profit doesn’t exude a responsible social presence without helping its community. Therefore, GM is donating $2 million dollars to the Detroit that will be used to renovate two community recreation centers near Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly – the plant responsible for birthing the Chevrolet Volt.
“Choosing to support improvements to Joseph Walker Williams Recreation Center and Lasky Recreation Center, two facilities near the Detroit-Hamtramck Plant, shows that we can all make a difference in the neighborhoods we call home,” exclaimed Detroit Mayor Dave Bing. “GM’s commitment to the residents of our city is an important example to the businesses of Metro Detroit.”
The donation is a part of GM’s effort to improve the communities where its vehicles are built, such as Lansing, MI and Lordstown, OH. For more info, have a look at the presser below.
