December 15, 2017 , Windsor, Ontario -



During a special presentation at FCA Canada’s headquarters today, Reid Bigland, President & CEO of FCA Canada, announced a donation of $1,258,107.18 to the United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County 2018 campaign. This marks the largest donation in the Windsor-Essex community this year and the 32nd consecutive year of FCA Canada employees and retirees donating over $1 million.

“FCA Canada employees and retirees have consistently demonstrated their unwavering support and commitment to the United Way of Windsor/Essex,” said Bigland. “Over the last 70 years, our employees have contributed over $65 million dollars towards this annual campaign. I am incredibly proud to be leading a team of such generous and caring people, and want to thank each and every team member for their ongoing support.”

United Way/Centraide is celebrating their 70th year of supporting the Windsor-Essex community. In addition to the annual campaign, FCA employees also volunteer for many United Way sponsored events, most recently the Unemployed Help Centre’s Children’s Christmas Party, which saw over 900 attendees.

Funds raised this year will go towards helping United Way take action to help local families and individuals gain access to education and financial stability. Programs include emergency assistance, after-school programs, and various means of mentorship and support.

“United Way fights for the mental health, education and financial stability of every person living in Windsor and Essex County,” said Lorraine Goddard, CEO of United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County. “FCA Canada and UNIFOR Local 444 have stood beside us since day one, and we are incredibly grateful for their ongoing partnership and support. This is a fantastic way to celebrate our 70th anniversary in the community, and a wonderful start to the new year.”

“When our community is in need, Unifor Local 444 will always be there as a partner and supporter, especially knowing the incredible impact that the United Way has across Windsor and Essex County,” said James Stewart, President of Unifor Local 444.

Windsor-Essex residents can also join the cause and help give back to assist those most vulnerable in our community. The public is encouraged to take part and donate generously for this year’s United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County 2018 campaign.

FCA US-sponsored United Way Block Party



Dec 15, 2017
Nearly 300,000 children in Michigan’s Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties currently qualify for free or reduced price school meals, yet many still do not access this resource. Yet of those eligible children, only about 17 percent participate in the free summer meals program, Meet Up and Eat Up. In response, FCA US sponsored five United Way Block Parties this summer to increase awareness and attendance of the Meet Up and Eat Up program.
