Toys for Tots: Each Chrysler and Dodge Minivan sold generates donation for kids
AUBURN HILLS, MI--Dec. 6, 2013: Chrysler Group LLC's Mid-Atlantic Business Center (MABC) and more than 250 of its dealers are joining forces with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to make this holiday season brighter for many families.
"This is our third holiday season partnering with Toys for Tots and it has been a heartwarming experience helping to put smiles on the faces of those less fortunate in our communities," said Carlos Jimenez, Director - Chrysler Group LLC Mid-Atlantic Business Center. "Our dealers have jumped on board every year to help make this partnership a huge success and it has been a great way for us to say thanks to the people who have supported us throughout the year."
As part of the program that runs now until December 26, the MABC is offering customers of 2013 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans 0% APR for 72 months plus a $1,000 down payment match or $2,500 consumer cash plus a $1,000 down payment match. For the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, the MABC is offering a lease for $279 per month for a 39-month term with $2,999 due at signing. A 2014 Grand Caravan lease is being offered for $249 per month for a 39-month term with $2,999 due at signing. The MABC will donate $100 to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation for every 2013 and 2014 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan sold throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, which covers Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia. All 259 Mid-Atlantic region dealers will also serve as a toy drop-off location.
"During a year when our corporate toy and dollar donations are significantly down, we are extremely pleased to have Chrysler's Mid-Atlantic Business Center return as a corporate partner to again help save the day," said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, Vice President - Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "With the funds and toys raised through their December promotion we will be able to reach thousands of less fortunate children in the Mid-Atlantic region, who might otherwise be overlooked this Christmas. We are so fortunate to have them on the Toys for Tots team."
Chrysler Group LLC's Mid-Atlantic Business Center and its dealers aim to raise thousands of dollars for Toys for Tots this holiday season. The campaign is in high gear at all Mid-Atlantic Chrysler and Dodge showrooms now until December 26.
