Essential Worker Honors Family Heritage and Generous American Spirit, Delivering Hope in a Mitsubishi Outlander
FRANKLIN, Tenn., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Chalensouk's family, like millions before them, came to America for a better life. Growing up, his parents instilled a quiet confidence and a deep sense of civic responsibility in their children. When his sister, Kathryn, told him about an opportunity to give back to a Native American community hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, Jack waited until a break in his schedule as a mail carrier, loaded up his Mitsubishi Outlander with essential supplies, and hit the road.
In his words, "I didn't have a lot growing up. My parents were war refugees; we lived on food stamps. Growing up in that type of environment, whenever you see another community in need, it makes you want to help out." The pair drove all night – from Southern California where he lives, to Las Vegas where his sister lives, and arriving at the remote Hopi Indian reservation in Arizona around lunchtime the next day.
After learning about his story, and meeting the empathetic, generous and adventurous Jack through Instagram, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) spoke with him to learn more about his family and what it meant to give back to the Hopi community. You can also see Jack's story online here, in the latest installment of the Small Batch – Big Impact short-film series.

MMNA: Have you made any modifications to Chili to match this adventurous lifestyle?
MMNA: It sounds like this is a value, among many others, instilled in you by your parents. You mention in the film that they were war refugees. Tell us a little bit abot their story.
MMNA: Your sister Kathryn has really taken this to heart and volunteers her time regularly. What stuck out to her about this opportunity – enough to get you involved?
