Charitable Work At Hyundai Of New Port Richey

Hyundai Hope On Wheels Partners With Children’s Hospitals Throughout the U.S. To Support COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers

 

Hyundai donates $200,000 to Rainbow Babies and Children’s (Cleveland, OH), Children’s National Hospital (Washington, D.C.), and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) to assist COVID-19 testing for children with pediatric cancer

 

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 24, 2020 – Hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by Hyundai Motor America and its U.S. dealers, announces support for COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers in partnership with children’s hospitals throughout the U.S. The COVID-19 (coronavirus) 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 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.”

 

Hyundai will be making a $200,000 donation to each of the following hospitals to support their Drive-Thru Testing Centers (additional hospitals to be announced):

       CHOC Children’s (Orange, CA)

       UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital (Cleveland, OH)

       Children's National Hospital (Washington, D.C.)

 

“This is an unusual time in our nation as we combat the ravages of COVD-19 coronavirus,” says Scott Fink, HHOW Board Chair and Hyundai dealer-owner, Hyundai of New Port Richey (New Port Richey, FL) and Hyundai of Wesley Chapel (Wesley Chapel, FL). “Hyundai dealers across America unite with Hyundai to serve humanity, as we come together in this time of national crisis. Through our involvement with Hyundai Hope On Wheels, we know that children who are fighting cancer have weakened immune systems and are at a high risk for COVID-19. Together, we have directed additional resources to the children hospitals, who are arranging COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers at their facilities across the U.S.”
