We have all heard about the new Wrangler going into production soon. The Toledo Assembly Complex (Jeep) will be launching the new Wrangler this fall. Over the course of six weeks, about 3,000 Jeep employees are being coordinated through United Way of Greater Toledo to volunteer at 35+ agencies as part of their orientation/emersion. In addition to volunteering, they have three days of training at the University of Toledo and also get to do some off-roading at the complex. They will return to work gradually through the month of October after being off since April.
