Honda is lending a helping hand in this trying time. The brand recently announced its goal to help associates, customers, partners, and communities throughout the country with an initial donation of $1 million. This pledge will go towards food banks and meal programs across North America.
In addition to this promise, when a Honda associate donates to a local food program, the brand will match up to $1,000 for each individual gift.
“We are focusing our societal response on three vital and immediate human needs,” said Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President of Honda North America. “We are addressing food insecurity at a time when many families are struggling, investigating the potential to use our manufacturing know-how to produce medical equipment to help those battling COVID-19, and deploying our associate ‘virtual volunteers,’ to help people in need.”
Honda is also donating N-95 masks to healthcare providers and manufacturing protective face shields with repurposed 3D printers. The carmaker is even partnering with other companies to build critical medical equipment to help fight the disease.
And that’s not all. The brand has even set up a new temporary paid personal leave of absence program, which allows eligible associates to receive full pay for up to 10 non-production business days.
