University Kia Shows Their Support of Local Charities
University Kia Grand Opening
Durham— September 4th — In addition to opening a brand new showroom on August 30th, University Kia showed their support of local community by presenting Meals on Wheels Chapel Hill – Carrboro with a donation of more than $10,000, which will help seniors and adults with disabilities in the Chapel Hill – Carrboro area gain access to hot and balanced meals that they otherwise would not be able to receive.
During the months of July and August, University Kia donated a portion of every new Kia sold to Meals on Wheels Chapel Hill – Carrboro. The total amount was raised over the two-month period was presented to the to them as a lump-sum of $10,239.
“We are incredibly grateful for our community partners, like University Kia, who really enable us to feed the hungry in our area,” said Rachel Sobel Berman, Executive Director at Meals on Wheels Chapel Hill – Carrboro.
As an ongoing commitment to the community, University Kia and Meals on Wheels Chapel Hill-Carrboro joined forces to help feed the elderly and homebound in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area. Back in early spring, University Kia generously donated a New 2019 Kia Soul to Meals on Wheels Chapel Hill-Carrboro to help them continue to provide hot, nutritious meals and personal visits to more than 180 recipients in the Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and southern Orange County areas who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.
“With our store now closer to Chapel Hill, we decided to partner with Meals on Wheels. We were able to donate the New 2019 Kia Soul to the program and we even had it custom vinyl wrapped so that it would stand out when people see it on the street. We are hoping that this raises awareness for the good that Meals on Wheels is doing for the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities. We also could not have done this venture without the help of WCHL radio in Chapel Hill,” said Aric Swanger, General Manager of University Kia.
