Kia Teams Up with the Wounded Warrior Project

To show its commitment to the U.S. market by creating jobs and financial investment, and to show its commitment to the men and women of the U.S. armed forces, Kia creates many initiatives that give back to the community. One of the most recent is the company's partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project. This organization both aids injured service members and helps to spread the word about them to increase public awareness on the subject. In conjunction with this organization, Kia Motors America donated a new 2012 Kia Soul hatchback to U.S. Army Corporal Christopher Melendez, who was injured while serving in Iraq.

Melendez was presented with the new Kia Soul at the New York International Auto Show due to the support of Kia and the organizers of the Show. The vehicle was heavily modified to meet Melendez's needs. Modifications include a steering wheel that can be turned with one hand, but all modifications can be easily removed if non-injured persons drive the vehicle. This recent donation from Kia follows on the heels of the company's donation to Camp Pendleton Armed Services YMCA's Operation Hero program, which was undertaken with the aid of professional women's golfer Michelle Wie (who is also the South Korean auto brand's public ambassador).

Are you interested in supporting the auto brand that truly cares? If so, be sure to stop by Lujack Kia Mazda Mitsubishi, located at 3700 N Harrison Street and test drive one of the fantastic new Kia models we have in stock today!
