Honda is committed to supporting the entire Honda family during the COVID-19 outbreak. The brand announced recently that it plants to help associates, customers, and communities throughout North America with an initial pledge of $1 million. This pledge will help provide local food banks and meal programs throughout the country with the items they need to help provide for those in need.
The carmaker also stated that it will match up to $1,000 for each individual gift that Honda associates make to local food programs.
“We are focusing our societal response on three vital and immediate human needs,” said Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President of Honda North America. “We are addressing food insecurity at a time when many families are struggling, investigating the potential to use our manufacturing know-how to produce medical equipment to help those battling COVID-19, and deploying our associate ‘virtual volunteers,’ to help people in need.”
Along with these monetary donations, Honda is also donating N-95 masks to help healthcare providers on the front line. The brand has also repurposed 3D printers to create protective face shields while partnering with other companies to produce critical medical equipment for those who need it.
Eligible Honda employees will also be able to take advantage of the brand’s new temporary paid personal leave of absence program. This will allow them to receive full pay for up to 10 non-production business days.
All of us here at Hardin County Honda are proud to be a part of the Honda family. To learn more about Honda’s donation and all the ways that we’re making your safety our number one priority, give us a call today.
