Team Honda Week of Service to Conduct Record Number of Community Service Projects Across North America
More than 25,000 volunteers across North America from Honda companies, dealers and suppliers will participate in the fourth annual Team Honda Week of Service this week.
This will include a record-setting 593 volunteer service activities in 42 states, as well as Canada and Mexico. This year, the Team Honda Week of Service coincides with the 60th anniversary of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., the first Honda company established in America, on June 11, 1959.
As Honda celebrates 60 years of operations in America, the company remains strongly committed to giving back to the communities where its associates and business partners live and work.
“Honda has been in North America for 60 years and continually strives to be a company that society wants to exist,” said Rick Schostek, executive vice president, Honda North America, Inc.
“We value giving back to the communities that have supported us and Honda is proud of the 25,000 volunteers who will be making a positive impact on the places we call home.” The 10-day Week of Service began with a virtual kick-off Friday, when many of the participating volunteers posted to social media using the hashtag #TeamHondaCares.
The Team Honda Week of Service continues to grow from its start in 2016 when 425 activities were conducted across 41 states. Over the past three years, volunteers have provided assistance through a variety of activities that include food drives, blood drives, adopt-a-pet events, home repair projects and providing meals at homeless shelters, among many other service activities.
Since its inception, the community impact from the annual event has resulted in more than 2,500 bags of trash cleaned up; nearly 2,350 pints of blood donated; more than 120 tons of food collected and more than 600,000 meals served.
