Built to Serve: Are You Up To The Challenge?

Hurricanes, floods, fires. When natural disasters strike, the call for help goes out! That call for help has repeatedly spurred the grassroots volunteer corps Ram Nation into action ever since it was formed in 2015. 

Ram truck owners put their everyday lives on temporary hold to fan out in their communities and help haul supplies, deliver equipment, clear debris, and distribute food and water in an all-out effort to help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible. 

With the launch of Ram’s ‘Built to Serve’ Edition trucks, coinciding with Veteran’s Day, the brand honors those who are or have been in military service and also encourages Ram owners, and all who want to serve their communities, to become members of the grassroots Ram Nation volunteer corp, with a goal of achieving 1.3 million cumulative volunteer hours of service by Veterans Day 2020. That’s equal to one hour served by each person in our armed forces.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
