Honda Gives Back During Supplier Conference
Suppliers made their mark on the community with charitable donations during the recent 2019 Honda Supplier Conference hosted in Columbus, Ohio.
A representative supplier committee selected two local nonprofits to receive donations for their work in the community. Hannah’s Treasure Chest received a $20,000 donation for their work to meet children’s basic needs by providing care packages.
In 2001, Hannah’s Treasure Chest’s founder started redistributing gently used children’s items to those who cannot afford them. Hannah’s Treasure Chest currently serves over 5,000 children each year.
“Because of your generosity, children will have really nice shoes that keep their feet dry. Children will ride safely in cars with properly sized car seats. Children will also continue to receive books, toys, and games that help them enjoy time together and strengthen the bond as a family unit.,” said Sarah Williams, executive director of Hannah’s Treasure Chest. “These are the lives that your donation will continue to make a difference for.”
Turning Point received a 2019 CR-V to transport its clients. Turning Point responds to domestic violence by providing shelter, counseling, advocacy, and general support services, and identifies and confronts the causes of domestic violence. Honda and Turning Point have a 20-year relationship, and Honda has sponsored many projects and programs within the organization.
“Your generous gift of a Honda CR-V will be used to provide transportation for our families to and from doctor visits, attorney appointments, court dates, school and jobs. You all just made those trips much easier and far more comfortable,” said Paula Roller, executive director of Turning Point.
Honda has been making charitable donations in lieu of supplier gifts since 2004. Donation amounts are dependent on need and vary from year to year.
