CHEVROLET BRINGS POSITIVE CHANGE TO SCHOOLCHILDREN IN KANCHANABURI
BANGKOK, THAILAND – As part of its mission to inspire lives and support local communities, Chevrolet Sales Thailand organized a visit to Kanchanaburi by more than 40 journalists to donate 1,354 ultra-durable One World Futbols to 1,354 children from nine schools, and refurbish the Soontornwech Border Patrol Police School in Sangkhla Buri on December 21, 2016.
The Chevrolet-branded One World Futbols were delivered to the school by the journalists, who had driven new accessorized Chevrolet Colorado pickups and Trailblazer SUVs, bringing smiles to over 220 children.
In addition, the media and Chevrolet representatives donated dry food, kitchen utensils, medicine and books to the school. The traveling team also refurbished the school’s canteen, kitchen, library and sports pitch – which now serves as a safe place for local children to play.
Nataporn Jiramakapoka, Director of Sale and Network, Chevrolet Sales Thailand, said: “Throughout the year, we have engaged in a range of corporate social responsibility activities, especially support for children and communities in need. Our commitment to the power of play through the sport of football is a key part of our initiatives.”
Police Senior Sergeant Major Sarach Rodphoon, the school principal who accepted the donation, said: “Thank you, Chevrolet Thailand, for your generous contribution. The children will be eager to play with the footballs and will benefit from the renovation of our school. It is great seeing a global brand such as Chevrolet help communities and enable positive change in the lives of children and others.”
With its mission of Driving a Better Tomorrow, Chevrolet Sales Thailand has been working with One World Play Project since 2013, donating over 25,000 One World Futbols to disadvantaged children across Thailand and bringing positive change to local communities.
Accessorized Colorado and Trailblazer
Four customized and six non-customized Colorados and Trailblazers were driven by the journalists from the Chevrolet Sales Thailand office at Rasa Tower in Bangkok to Kanchanaburi. The pickups and SUVs featured accessories showing their creativity and limitless potential, allowing customers to drive a vehicle that matches their personality.
The accessories for the Colorado include an extended sports bar with a soft tonneau cover, a bed liner, side steps, a black grille, tailgate and hood decals, a cup holder, front and rear black Chevrolet bowtie logos, a fuel cover, a tubular side step and an RR step bumper. Accessories such as the sports bar and decals help beautify the truck, while the side steps and RR step bumper make the truck tougher as well as making it easier to get in and out of the bed.
The accessories come in four special packages that have been developed to suit different preferences and budgets:
- Strong package (THB 10,000 for seven items);
- Medium package (THB 20,000 for eight items);
- Large package (THB 45,000 for 10 items);
- Premium package (THB 70,000 for 12 items).
For the Trailblazer, Chevrolet offers a list of accessories inspired by the Silverado and Colorado Midnight Edition in the U.S. The accessories package, priced at THB 27,000, includes a DVD roof monitor, a rear roof spoiler, cup holders, a rear bumper, and a black Chevrolet bowtie logo in front and back.
Additional special accessories available for Trailblazer customers include a front bumper, a chrome-tipped exhaust, a fender flare, a rear roof spoiler (with a new design) and a black grille.
