Kia in the Community

As a member of the Greater Charleston community since, 2003, Kia Country has always maintained a commitment to give back to our neighbors.

Kia places a high value on its role as a responsible corporate citizen. We’re continually increasing our efforts to positively impact the communities we’re in.

We’re always working to enhance the quality of life for people everywhere—to strive for a safe, diverse, and prosperous world.

Warrior Surf Foundation

Kia has had a long-standing commitment to supporting the military and we honor the service of

our staff and family members, as well as those in the Greater Charleston community. 

We are thrilled to name Warrior Surf Foundation, our signature community partner for 2020.

This amazing local non-profit organization created by veterans for veterans. 

Founded on Folly Beach, in 2015, WSF addresses post-service transition challenges and works

to enhance the physical and mental well-being of veterans and their families through surf therapy. 

Kia Country will make a donation for every Kia sold through our Military Appreciation Program

and work to make WSF a household name. WSF has helped hundreds of veterans with physical

and/or psychological disabilities. Learn more at Warriorsurf.org.

Want to help? Get involved. Share social media posts with the hashtag #WarriorSurfvolunteer or donate. 

Every little bit helps. “It’s a way to honor their choice to serve.”

 

Charleston Animal Society

We dream of a world without animal cruelty. Kia Country served as the Title Sponsor for the Charleston Firefighter Calendar, sponsored a variety of educational initiatives for kids 7-17, and hosted Bark & Boo,

an annual event to support the pet food bank.

B.R.A.K.E.S.

Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe provides free advanced driver’s education through its Teen Pro-Active Driving Curriculum.  Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 15-17-year-olds

and the first six months of driving are the most dangerous.

Katie’s Krops

According to Feeding America, nearly 49 million Americans struggle with hunger. Kia Country is pleased to support Katie’s Krops, a youth organization led by Summerville native and Chief Executive Gardener

Katie Stagliano that is growing an end to hunger.

Kia Country Cares Food Drive Marathon

Kia Country collected approximately 2000 lbs of canned goods and other non-perishable food items to help our less fortunate neighbors.

We split the food between two of our favorite local organizations: Katie’s Krops and the Lowcountry Food Bank.
