The Kia Canada Drive Change Program – We Can All Drive Change
Since 2010, Kia Canada’s Drive Change initiative has been helping people join together to make a difference in the community. In 2011 alone there were 117 Drive Change events across Canada that raised $45,000 for community projects and non-profit organizations.
Being part of Drive Change is Kamloops Kia’s way of giving back to the Kamloops community that has supported us and helped our dealership become what it is today.
The Drive Change initiative happens annually on August 21, and we invite you to join us this year to attend your local event or even creating your own. Ask Kamloops Kia how you can get involved and make a difference.
