Kia America announced a $500,000 contribution to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Ian. The donation will help to support the non-profit organization as it works diligently to provide food and facilitate temporary shelter to those in need. In addition, Kia Finance America customers affected by the devastating hurricane may be eligible for payment relief solutions. Kia Finance America customers can call the company’s customer service line at (866) 331-5632 to inquire about their options during this difficult time.
“The path of destruction Hurricane Ian left in its wake is truly devastating, especially throughout Florida and South Carolina. At Kia, we are committed to helping and we are proud that our donation will assist in the recovery process for those affected by this storm,” said Sean Yoon, president & CEO, Kia North America and Kia America. “We applaud the American Red Cross for the important work the organization undertakes not only in times of crisis such as now but every day.”
The brand’s “Accelerate The Good” humanitarian effort, which has given approximately $4.8 million to those in need since 2019, is being extended by Kia’s support of the American Red Cross. Aside from hurricane relief, Kia has also created scholarships for students who want to pursue higher education, allowed high schools to resume football programs after budget cuts that were brought on by the pandemic, provided PPE to medical facilities across the country during the pandemic, and assisted the homeless population across the U.S. In addition, Kia has donated to several animal welfare organizations including those that help shelter animals find their forever homes and those that help rescue, rehabilitate, and preserve the endangered sea turtle population.
Kia actively encourages its dealer network, employees, and vendor partners to provide as much support as they can. For more information on how to get involved, visit www.redcross.org.
