In June, Team Honda arranged its 4th annual Team Honda Week of Service. The service event lasted from June 7 through June 16, overlapping with the 60th anniversary of Honda beginning operations in the U.S. (June 11, 1959, which Honda calls Founder’s Day).
During this time, more than 25,000 volunteers from Honda dealerships, suppliers, factories, and corporate offices participated in charitable acts all across North America. All told, Honda employees gave back in 42 states, Canada, and Mexico.
In total, these volunteers participated in over 600 different charitable activities, from repairing homes to food and blood drives to pet shelter events to park and beach clean-ups.
Some numbers from the Week of Service:
- Honda employees served 592,000 meals and collected and sorted 65 tons of food.
- Honda employees raised $100,000 for nonprofit organizations across the continent.
- Honda employees donated 2,210 pints of blood.
“Honda’s Week of Service continues to grow and we are grateful to our associates and to those who join us in giving back to the communities where we work and live during this special week,” remarked Jeffrey Smith, vice president of Honda North America, Inc. “Team Honda has become a powerful force for good, demonstrating that by working together we can truly build nurturing communities.” Our staff at Don Wessel Honda is proud to be a part of Team Honda and everything that’s done to give back to our local communities.
