Kia is again showing their commitment to philanthropic efforts.
This week Kia announced a one-year partnership with The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, California.
The Ecology Center is a non-profit organization that is centered on creating a health and abundant future for people in Southern California.
Kia Works to Further Conservation and Sustainability
Kia and the Ecology Center will organize sustainability-focused learning projects at Kia’s campus in Irvine, California and locations in the surrounding community.
The organizations are working together to plan hands-on conservation and volunteer activities, with Kia providing the man-power to run the events and projects.
The partnership kicked off at an annual banquet that featured farm-to-table dining in order to raise awareness for locally farmed food.
Leaders from Kia complimented The Ecology Center’s role as a leader for conservation and environmental awareness, and said that the organization is the perfect partner for Kia Motors.
“Kia understands that a conscious dedication to sustainability is crucial for not only the continued success of our organization, but also the health and happiness of our customers and the communities we call home.” – Michael Sprague, VP, Kia Marketing
“With its ongoing efforts to make the vehicle-production process more eco-friendly, Kia has a reputation for being an environmentally minded company” – Evan Marks, Director of The Ecology Center
This newest project is just another example of how Kia is one of the most community-minded companies in the country.
Kia has an on-going partnership with DonorsChoose, a website that connects needy schools with potential donors, and has worked with the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief after the spring tornadoes in Oklahoma.
