To aid in the continued fight against COVID-19, Santa Fe Kia has donated more than 100 face shields for medical worker use at Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center. This delivery is the latest element of Kia Motors’ Accelerate the Good program, which includes national and local level initiatives implemented in response to the pandemic. Each of Kia’s 757 retailers nationwide are making similar donations to the hospital or medical facility of their choosing, totaling  mor than 75,000 face shields across 50 states.

“Kia has really stepped up in this time of need and we are honored to  do our part and by helping Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center in the fight against COVID-19 by providing these needed face shields to medical workers here in Santa Fe,” said Morley Fletcher, President and Owner of Santa Fe Kia. ” We are grateful for the hard work and dedication these frontline medical workers exhibit every day to  save lives in  our community.”

The latest face shield deliveries are the latest in a series of initiatives Kia Motors America implemented in response to COVID-19. The program, called Accelerate The Good, previously saw Kia donating $1 million dollars to multiple non-profit partners that assist homeless youth nationwide, including Covenant House, Stand Up for Kids, and Family Promise. The $1 million donation was designed to help homeless youth in all SO states receive much needed shelter and care during this time. In addition, earlier face shield donations – more than 300,000 thus far – were made to hospitals and medical facilities in hard hit metropolitan areas.
