Kia in the Community

Sunset Charleston

Kia Country is active in our community. Kia is one of the fastest growing car companies in the U.S., and as sales have grown, so has our role as a responsible corporate citizen. We’re continually increasing our efforts to positively impact the communities we’re in. In fact, one of our company’s core values is Globality. This means we’re always working to enhance the quality of life for people everywhere—to strive for a safe, diverse, and prosperous world. As a member of the Greater Charleston community since, 2003, Kia Country of Charleston has always maintained a commitment to give back to our neighbors.

Kia Country and Charleston Animal Society

As a company of passionate pet owners, Kia Country is Driving to End Animal Cruelty through a multi-year sponsorship of the Charleston Firefighter Calendar and supporting Charleston Animal Society through our communications and social media and events. Together, we can end animal cruelty. Learn More. 


We are delighted to help bring B.R.A.K.E.S, (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe), to Charleston. This non-profit organization provides free advanced driver’s education through its Teen Pro-Active Driving Curriculum. In February, the program came to Charleston for the first time and provided training to 160 area teens. We are working closely with the B.R.A.K.E.S. organization and local partners to make this a bi-annual event. Kia Motors America has a multi-year partnership to support this program and provide vehicles for the courses. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 15-17-year-olds and the first six months of driving are the most dangerous. Learn more about B.R.A.K.E.S. and why it is such an important asset for our community. You can help us support B.R.A.K.E.S. and make sure this lifesaving program returns to Charleston. All donations support Charleston-based programs. Let’s bring B.R.A.K.E.S. back to Charleston in October. Donate now.

Food Drive
Kia Country held a food drive and we were overwhelmed with the outpouring of community support. We collected approximately 2000 pounds of canned goods and other non-perishable food items to help our less fortunate neighbors.
