Building a better world for tomorrow, starts today at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.
For the 19th consecutive year, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama team members held a toy, bicycle, and fund drive for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.
During the months of November and December, team members purchased 191 bicycles and hundreds of other toys from local retailers. Team members from every area of the plant chipped in to donate the items which will help give a happier Christmas to Montgomery-area children who might otherwise go without.
The donated bicycles and toys went to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign. In addition to the bicycles and toys, HMMA team members gave $3,225 in cash to Toys for Tots.
This year marked the 14th consecutive year that HMMA has focused on collecting bicycles for Toys for Tots. In those 14 years, more than 4,000 bicycles have been donated by Team Members.
