Benson Honda, a leading Honda dealer in San Antonio is proud to bring the heartwarming news of Honda’s recent achievement in donating millions of dollars to various charities to help others. Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc has contributed over $75 million in philanthropic contributions around the country. $22 million of that total came directly from Honda associates.
"From the beginning, our aim has been to be a good neighbor and to support the many organizations that are dedicated to improving the communities around us," said Honda of America Vice President Rick Schostek. "By partnering with great organizations like the YMCA, we've been able to support a number of important initiatives that have enriched many lives."
Honda has made donating to various charitable programs a priority since 1979.
While Honda as a whole has been active in charitable work, the company feels it is the Honda associates who truly make the total reach its height. Through the Honda Hero Program, the associates have donated a total of $22 million and contributed 660,000 hours of services to numerous programs.
"Beyond the number, $75 million in philanthropy really represents the efforts of thousands of Honda associates who genuinely care about our communities and want to make a difference by getting involved," said Caroline Ramsey, government and community relations manager for Honda of America. "Our philanthropic donations have assisted a wide variety of community needs and we remain committed to ongoing partnerships with non-profit organizations throughout the region."
