Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Organization

Right here in Michigan, there is a great non-profit organization whose primary goal is to support our wounded veterans that have served in either Iraq or Afghanistan and also live in Michigan. That group is called The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund (FWSF).

The Beginning

Since mid-2006, FWSF has supported veterans in need of assistance. A great deal of the organization’s funding is provided by local businesses and organizations, as well as donations. FWSF supports our veterans through a variety of means, including assistance with housing payments, utilities, transportation costs, food, home repairs, medical expenses, funeral costs, and more.

Recent Years

In 2015, FWSF was able to assist 253 veterans with $465,371. In 2016, the group received even more funding and were able to support 360 veterans with $707,523. As the needs of our veterans continue to grow, FWSF hopes to help even more.

If you have been searching for a great non-profit organization to donate your time or money, consider the FWSF. None of their volunteers or members receive any pay. That means the FWSF has a current give rate of 97%, which makes you feel confident your money is going where it is intended.

Here at Rochester Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we are proud to support and showcase The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund.

Family Green Car of the Year

There is no denying that a minivan is the ultimate family hauler. Now, with the first-ever Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, families have a new way to combine the versatility they need with the efficiency they want. This innovative model was recently named the Northwest Family Green Car of the Year by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA).

Reviews

NWAPA members gathered in Portland, Oregon, to test drive 19 energy-efficient and fuel-saving vehicles, including gasoline-electric models, battery-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, and even a hydrogen fuel cell model. The Chrysler Pacific Hybrid impressed the writers with its great range, efficiency, and excellent versatility.

Range

“With its 33-mile electric-only range, the Pacifica Hybrid has plenty of range for most drivers’ daily commutes…” said NWAPA President John Vincent. “Journalists overwhelmingly picked the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid as the Northwest Family Green Car of the Year, recognizing the first hybrid minivan’s exceptional fuel economy as a groundbreaking way to extend family budgets.”

Safety

Along with its fuel-saving powertrain, the Pacifica offers more than 100 available safety and security features, along with an abundance of desirable tech features. Families will especially appreciate the available Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system.
