Kia Motors Donates $500,000 To Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Kia provided much needed assistance to the Red Cross to aid those affected by the hurricane on the eastern seaboard.

Boulder, CO (I-Newswire) November 28, 2012 - Kia Motors America, the company that distributes vehicles to local dealerships like Fisher Kia of Boulder, is committed to providing relief to those in need on the East Coast. This substantial donation will be used to provide much needed food, supplies, and shelter for victims of the recent natural disaster.

Hurricane Sandy tore through the Caribbean and up the eastern seaboard of the United States at the end of October. Meteorologists called Sandy a "Frankenstorm" because it was a bizarre and unprecedented combination of a Nor'easter - a large-scale winter storm that can affect the northeast - and a Hurricane coming from the south. This combination resulted in the biggest storm ever recorded on the Atlantic coast measuring 1,100 miles in diameter. Sandy also has been one of the most costly storms with damages estimated at $65.5 billion; only Hurricane Katrina did more damage. Millions lost power and many lost their homes.

Hyundai quickly donated $500,000 to the Red Cross relief effort. The Red Cross is one of the best-known humanitarian and disaster relief organizations in the world, and this sum was used to support those displaced from their homes by the storm.

The Red Cross provides shelter, sustenance, and medical support when necessary. For Hurricane Sandy, the Red Cross deployed 9,000 workers to Eastern states from Rhode Island to North Carolina. In New York and New Jersey the organization provided shelter to 1,900 people. It also provided six million meals and two million items, such as cleanup, first-aid and hygiene kits.

Kia Motors America is a distribution branch of the Kia Motor Company of Korea. The Kia company contributes to and supports communities it serves through donations to charitable and humanitarian organizations. Kia Motors America, which is based in Irvine, California, has become one of the fastest growing auto manufacturers in the country.
