Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia provides funding to Troup County Schools for Child ID kits | News
Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) provided an $8,000 donation to the Troup County School System on Thursday that will be used to provide Child ID kits to children in the local community.
The Child ID kits will allow parents to store comprehensive and confidential records and descriptions and quickly share this information with police and other responders, saving valuable time in the event of an emergency.
“The well-being of the children in our community is of critical importance to Kia Motors and the team members of KMMG,” said Randy Jackson, KMMG’s vice president of human resources and administration. “We thank Dr. Cole Pugh and the Troup County School System for their willingness to be our partner in this project to help increase the safety for this area’s children.”
Pugh thanked KMMG for the plant’s commitment to giving back to the local community.
"Ka Motors Manufacturing Georgia continues to demonstrate corporate citizenship by giving back to the community," said Pugh. "We are thankful for Kia's support. The child identification kits will greatly benefit our students."
