Kia Contributes $200,000 to Help with Hurricane Relief Efforts

Is Kia Donating to Those Affected by Hurricane Ida?

Our hearts go out to those affected by the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida. We love and support our neighbors to our west here at Friendly Kia, and all across the country, and we wish for a speedy recovery for everyone who was impacted by this horrific storm. But we know that this recovery won’t be easy. Still, it is important to understand how we can all help. We found out this week that our manufacturing partner has joined in the efforts to assist with the relief, as Kia has donated $200,000 to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Ida. 

Hurricane Ida Relief Efforts 

In addition to Kia’s monetary donation to the American Red Cross, Kia has announced that Kia Motors Finance customers who have been affected by Hurricane Ida may be eligible for some payment relief solutions. Those customers who may be affected are encouraged to call the Kia customer service line at 866-331-5632. This all falls in line with Kia’s recent “Accelerate The Good” initiatives, which have helped provide assistance to those in need since 2019.  

How to Help Those Affected by Hurricane Ida 

If you are looking to provide assistance, you can do so. It is always important to make sure that any charity you are donating to is a legitimate organization and that your funds will be put to appropriate use. We have compiled a few different links for your information if you want to help provide assistance to the relief efforts. This is not an all-inclusive list, so be sure to conduct a search and see if there may be other organizations or fundraisers to which you can contribute. Please stay safe out there, everyone, and take care.
