FCA Motor Citizens Recognized for Stewardship Efforts

Posted by – Shawn Keenan, Assistant City Planner

The City of Auburn Hills would like to congratulate FCA Motor Citizens, a volunteer corps assembled by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, for receiving the Clinton River Watershed Council’s 2015 Jerry Carvey Volunteer of the Year Award.

FCA Motor Citizens were presented with the Award for their longtime support and stewardship efforts in keeping our waterways clean.  The great majority of their efforts were achieved through their participation in CRWC stewardship programs, such as Weekly Clean, Clinton Cleanup, and woody debris removal events.

FCA Motor Citizens provides dozens of volunteers to these stewardship efforts each year which equates to hundreds of hours spent cleaning up trash and other debris from the Clinton River, its watershed and Lake St. Clair.  The time that FCA Motor Citizens continues to provide CRWC and the community in the form of positive and hardworking volunteers, shows their commitment to protecting our waterways for all to enjoy.

The Jerry Carvey Volunteer of the Year Award was created to recognize individuals for their extraordinary commitment of time, talents and resources to fostering improvement and protection of the Clinton River, its watershed, and Lake St. Clair.
