Chrysler Builds Life-size Model of Grand Caravan Entirely out of Packaged Food Products

Here at Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, we've previously covered how it's the 30th anniversary of the Chrysler Town & Country minivan. Well, the Town & Country isn't the only Chrysler family minivan celebrating its 30th year; the famed Dodge Grand Caravan also turned 30 just a couple of weeks ago. In celebration of 30 years of minivan dominance, Chrysler decided to help the less fortunate and raise money for charity.

We have seen over and over that in addition to making great vehicles, Chrysler is the type of company that truly cares about the well-being of society. This time, they teamed up with Canstruction, an international organization dedicated to raising awareness of hunger and poverty issues, to build a full-scale replica of the Dodge Grand Caravan out of 30,000 food cans. They did this at the corner of Yonge and Dundas streets in Toronto, which is a ways down the highway from Windsor, where the Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles are built and then shipped to our new inventory in Grand Rapids. The structure was built over the course of 10 hours by 30 volunteers. Also at the site of the Can'avan was a real 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan model with a collection bin for a local food drive.

The structure, referred to as the Dodge Can'avan, has since been taken down, and the cans have been donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank, a local hunger relief organization. The group will then spread the cans out into 2,000 food baskets to be distributed to those in need throughout the region.

Although the Can'avan has been taken down, you can still come to our dealership to check out the minivan that has been attracting drivers as far away as Lansing, the Dodge Grand Caravan.
