Chrysler-built playgrounds popping up across USA

Company News

Chrysler employees and dealership personnel have been building quite a few playgrounds lately.

On Friday, more than 250 volunteers built one in Orlando, Fla. On Thursday, a playground was built in Newport News, Va.

In the week ahead, playgrounds will be constructed Wednesday in Bossier City, La., and on Saturday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

A playground-building day is also planned for Nov. 1 in Detroit.

In total, 25 playgrounds are scheduled to be built this year by KaBoom, The Chrysler Foundation; Chrysler Financial; and Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealers across the country to provide more than 70,000 children with a great place to play.

KaBoom is an organization that is aiming to provide an enjoyable place to play within walking distance of every child in America.
