Companies Spreading Good Will Through Acts of Service
Honda’s companies, suppliers and dealers across North American are performing 560 acts of service this week as part of the third annual Team Honda Week of Service. This week, there are 107 Honda-led projects, 178 supplier-led projects and 275 projects led by dealers taking place in 48 states, Mexico and Canada.
