Kia Hosts “Holiday’s on Us” Teacher Celebration to Help Schools
Since 2012, Kia has launched its “Holiday’s on Us” campaign to raise money for schools in need, along with a coinciding sales event to get the attention of consumers. This year, with DonorsChoose.org, Kia hosted a “Holiday’s on Us” Teacher Appreciation Celebration event in Buffalo, New York. The event, held on December 13th, was created to raise funds for potentially 200 classroom projects.

“Kia has been an amazing partner in supporting classroom projects and helping us toward our goal to reach all of the high-need schools in America,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose.org. “With the help of partners like Kia, we can ensure that all public school teachers have resources and support to provide enriching learning experiences for their students.”
Throughout the years, both companies have helped over 1.5 million public school students and have raised more than $7.5 million in resources. The current campaign is working to fund projects in 100% of high-need schools by 2020.
“Kia is dedicated to providing teachers with the classroom resources they need to build a better future for students,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “We encourage people to join Kia in making a difference by visiting DonorsChoose.org to learn how they can make an impact for as little as $1.”
DonorsChoose.org is always accepting donations, even past the holiday season. If you would like to make a donation or learn more about the program, feel free to visit their website. We hope Kia continues this generous tradition and raises that much needed money for those schools.
