"The United Way and employees at the GM Lordstown plant have a strong history.  The employees have been dedicated donors and volunteers to the United Way cause for more than 50 years, and we wanted to honor that relationship by purchasing the Last Chevy Cruze made by the hands of these men and women who so generously supported our community," said Ed Muransky.
