On Dec. 20th, in a collaborative effort, Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant and Habitat for Humanity Mississippi Capital Area (HFHMCA) marked a significant milestone with the completion of their 15th home build in the tri-county area. More than 100 dedicated employee volunteers from Nissan contributed their time and skills during an eight-day building project from August to October, benefiting Canton resident Sharon Wilkes and her family.
“As we commemorate two decades of being part of Canton’s story, our commitment to building exceptional vehicles has been mirrored by our dedication to our extraordinary community,” said Victor Taylor, vice president of manufacturing, Nissan Canton. “Our collaboration with Habitat for Humanity embodies our commitment to making positive, lasting impacts. As we extend a helping hand, we’re shaping a better future for everyone.”
“The corporate support of Nissan Canton allows us to build a safe, decent, affordable home for someone living in Canton,” said Merrill McKewen, executive director at Habitat for Humanity Mississippi Capital Area. “With their funding and employees as volunteers they are perfect partners in providing a hand up, not a handout.”

Imagine having to go without a coat, shoes, or even socks. For millions of children and adults experiencing homelessness and other urgent need situations, this can be a harsh reality.
This February during Subaru Loves to Help® month, we are partnering with Operation Warm, a national non-profit that is focused on connecting children with the resources they need to thrive. This partnership will amplify our continued support for those who need it most.
Subaru and our retailers are visiting local homeless shelters and support agencies to provide more than 150,000 children with brand-new necessities like coats, shoes, and socks.
These essential items not only help keep children protected, warm, and dry, they can have a significant impact on a child’s mental and emotional well-being. These items can mean the difference between going to school or not; between participating in activities or sitting out. No child should ever have to face these circumstances.

This year, award recipients were chosen in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, Michigan—near Hyundai America Technical Center, Inc. and the new Safety Test and Investigation Laboratory in Superior Township.
“Hyundai is proud to celebrate Black History Month through the continuation of the Progress Project,” said Randy Parker, chief executive officer, Hyundai Motor America. “The Progress Project by Hyundai underscores our progress for humanity vision by directly investing in the people and places that also call Michigan home, and we look forward to watching 3N1 Fitness Revolution, A-Square Fight Club, and Issa’s Pizza continue to thrive in their local communities.”

1. 3N1 Fitness Revolution (Ann Arbor, Mich.): A multidimensional gym of holistic well-being where members can get physically, nutritionally, and mindfully fit. The gym used the donation for a refreshing facelift with a new sign and updated fitness equipment, ensuring the space remains at the forefront of community health.
2. A-Square Fight Club (Ann Arbor, Mich.): An affordable boxing gym that focuses on the art, conditioning, and science behind training. With the donation, the gym made repairs to the ring, refurbished some structural pieces of the gym, and purchased new heavy bags.
