The General Motors Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center and Brownstown Battery Assembly Plant awarded $50,000 in grants to five metro Detroit nonprofit organizations committed to community development, environmental cleanup and educational programs.

The nonprofits were voted on by employees at each plant and awarded through the GM Community Grants program, funded by the GM Foundation. The checks were presented during Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly’s annual employee appreciation day event. Each organization received $10,000.

“Our commitment to this community runs deep,” says Jackie Parker, president, GM Foundation. “While building vehicles that people love is why we’re here, the Community Grants Program empowers our neighbors, fosters sustainable change in the community.”

The GM Community Grants will support the following organizations and community programs:
