To support communities affected by Hurricane Ian, Hyundai Motor North America, which includes Hyundai Motor America and Genesis Motor America, Hyundai Capital America and Hyundai Motor Group, are donating $3.1 million to local Florida charities. The donation of $50 for every Hyundai and Genesis vehicle sold in the U.S. in October will go toward serving those who were impacted by Hurricane Ian in Florida.

'We have seen the devastation that Hurricane Ian has brought to Southwest Florida and Hyundai is committed to helping those impacted by the storm as they rebuild,' said José Muñoz, president and CEO of Hyundai and Genesis Motor North America. 'We know these organizations will help to provide this community with the resources and support they need to continue moving forward.'

The following charities will receive donations:

•Feeding Florida: Feeding Florida is the state's network of 12-member food banks working to solve hunger. The food banks are on the ground providing food, water and resources to those affected by Hurricane Ian.

•Habitat for Humanity of Florida: Several Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Florida are assessing damage across the state and will be engaged in long-term recovery efforts to help communities build back from the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian. Their post-disaster recovery efforts will focus on meeting long-term housing needs, repairing damaged homes and building affordable, disaster-resistant homes.

•Project Hope: Project HOPE supports local healthcare workers saving lives across the globe. They are currently responding to Hurricane Ian by delivering medical supplies, hygiene kits, food and clean water, as well as supporting clinics serving the most vulnerable.

Hyundai Motor Group also separately donated $1 million to the American Red Cross in support of its Hurricane Ian relief efforts. The program is an extension of Hyundai's long-standing Hyundai Assurance program that is dedicated to the safety, health and well-being of its customers, employees, dealers and communities in which it does business.
