NIELSEN KIA DONATES FACE SHIELDS TO FRANCISCAN HEALTH MICHIGAN CITY

Donation of Personal Protective Equipment Assembled at Kia’s U.S. Plant is Latest Element of Kia Motors’ Accelerate The Good Program


Michigan City, IN, July 13, 2020 – To aid in the fight against COVID-19, Nielsen Kia has donated more          

than 100 face shields for medical worker use at Franciscan Health Michigan City.  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 more than 

75,000 face shields across all 50 states.


“Kia has really stepped up in this time of need and we are honored to do our part and by helping 

 Franciscan Health Michigan City in the fight against COVID-19 by providing badly needed face shields to 

medical workers here in Michigan City,” said Jeff Nielsen, President, Nielsen 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 to multiple non-profit partners that assist homeless youth nationwide, 

including Covenant House, StandUp for Kids and Family Promise.  The $1 million donation was 

designed to help homeless youth in all 50 states receive much needed shelter and care needed 

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 such as Atlanta, Chicago, 

Detroit, Los Angeles and New York City.
