Kia Canada resumes Drive Change promotion
Mississauga-based automaker Kia Canada has begun a promotion called "Drive Change." For a seventh year, the company will collaborate with three Canadian Major League Soccer teams in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal to conduct free soccer camps for youth living in inner city areas. For a third year, Kia and its 189 dealers nationally, along with participating corporate partners, will conduct a National Equipment Drive to collecting donations of soccer equipment to provide to young players. Donations can be made at Kia dealerships from Aug. 19 to Sept. 30.
"Kia Canada is delighted to 'Drive Change' again this year by supporting young Canadians through the beautiful sport of soccer, enabling youth to attend free clinics to develop their skills," said Ted Lancaster, chief operating officer of Kia Canada. "Moreover, our dealers, employees as well as our business partners will all join in support of our third annual national equipment drive, which will certainly be providing many Canadian youth with access to soccer and equipment in communities across Canada."
