DaimlerChrysler, Van Campen Donate Two Durango SUVs


DaimlerChrysler and Van Campen Dodge-Chrysler Suzuki of Williamsport recently donated two sport utility vehicles valued at more than $53,000 to Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The donations will allow students in the automotive programs in Penn College’s School of Transportation Technology to gain valuable knowledge and hands-on technical experience with DaimlerChrysler vehicles.

The vehicles being donated are a 2000 Dodge Durango valued at $26,113 and a 2001 Dodge Durango valued at $26,920.

Presenting the vehicles to Penn College were Charles Irwin, national manager for the DaimlerChrysler vocational-education donation program, and James Van Campen and Tom Cohick of Van Campen Dodge-Chrysler Suzuki.

Accepting them on behalf of the College was Colin W. Williamson, dean of the School of Transportation Technology.

“The Durangos are current-model technology that will be used to teach automatic transmissions, accessory repair and engine performance,” Williamson said. “The donations enable our students to experience a broader range of vehicles, giving them more employment options .”
