Kia cares for Canadians and is committed to giving back during these challenging times. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Food Banks Canada to support hunger relief efforts across the country, at a time when the national need for food security is heightened and operational capacity in food banks is strained.
Within the #PowerToGive program, Kia is lending the use of its vehicles to enable local food banks and their dedicated volunteers to continue to serve Canadians who have been impacted by COVID-19. The company is also donating $200,000 to Food Banks Canada’s Covid-19 Response Fund, to purchase food supplies and to enhance food banks’ health and safety practices.
Kia is committed to supporting Canadians as we tackle these trying times together. That’s why, in response to the ongoing need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), we’ve donated 60,000 medical-grade face shields to the Public Health Agency of Canada ― to equip the country’s heroic frontline healthcare workers as they work tirelessly to heal their communities. Produced in a re-tooled section of Kia Motors’ manufacturing plant in West Point, Georgia, this donation supports our shared, global mission to affect positive change, and is an extension of our Power To Give COVID-19 relief efforts, including our partnership with Food Banks Canada. For complete details on the donation, please see our press announcement http://www.kiamedia.ca/content/news/press-releases/face-shields.pdf If you’d like to support, please visit Food Banks Canada to donate.
