In 2020 University KIA partnered with Sackcloth and Ashes, a blanket company dedicated to helping homeless shelters throughout the United States.


 

Founder of Sackcloth & Ashes, Bob Dalton was inspired to help the homeless population when his mother, a hardworking single mother, found herself living on the streets in 2013.

Because of his mother's story, Dalton was inspired to call his local homeless shelters to ask what they needed most – they all said blankets.

That's when he founded Sackcloth & Ashes. For every blanket purchased, Sackcloth & Ashes gives a blanket to your local homeless shelter.

On June 1st, 2018 Sackcloth & Ashes launched its first major campaign called Blanket the United States. The goal of the campaign is to donate ONE MILLION blankets to homeless shelters by 2024

 

University KIA was intrigued by this idea and wanted to participate. Through their partnership, University KIA will give customers one blanket with every New Kia sold and as a result, they are able to donate 500 blankets to the Durham Rescue Mission.
