Hyundai, Toyota Donate to Covid-19 Victims
In their own ways, car companies are helping the community out with various donations to Covid-19 victims. One example of this is Hyundai and their Hope On Wheels initiative donating $2 million to different children’s hospitals throughout the United States. Hyundai Hope On Wheels recently announced a donation of $2 million for Covid-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers in partnership with children’s hospitals throughout the U.S. The Covid-19 pandemic has created a particular threat to children with cancer, many of whom have compromised immune systems. Covid-19 drive-thru testing provides a safe and trusted way for children who present risk factors to receive the care they need. As a leading funder of pediatric cancer research, Hyundai Hope On Wheels has supported the health and well-being of children with cancer since 1998. “Hyundai is a company committed to improving the well-being of society and the health of children,” says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “In the last few weeks, our society has been challenged with a major pandemic that has had significant consequences to life, safety and well-being. Children who are diagnosed with cancer are particularly at high risk. Through our Hyundai Hope On Wheels program, we are committed to being a strong partner on behalf of children’s health and assisting during this time.” The following children’s hospitals are the first three of ten to receive a $200,000 donation from Hyundai Hope On Wheels to support their Drive-Thru Testing Centers. Additional hospitals will be announced in the following days.
- CHOC Children’s (Orange, CA)
