Part of being a good corporate citizen, Kawasaki USA supported several charities in 2019, raising cash and supporting worthy causes with product donations, as well as VIP racing fan experiences at Monster Energy Supercross. In the past year alone, Kawasaki has kicked down $100,000 to charitable efforts.
“The charities Kawasaki has chosen to work with are a fundamental part of our community,” said Bill Jenkins, SVP Sales and Operations. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to support charities such as the Boys and Girls Club of South Coast Area, the CHiPs for Kids Toy Drive, Honoring our Wounded Military (HOWM), Orange County Police Canine Association, and The ALS Association – Orange County Chapter. We have supported these organizations with both financial and product donations for their causes to help our community where we can.”
Kawasaki’s efforts helped to raise $45,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of South Coast Area by donating two 2020 Jet Ski STX160 personal watercraft and two VIP Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Supercross experience. Kawasaki employees always make sure to support those in need during the holidays by providing toys and other gifts for the California Highway Patrol’s ninth annual CHiPs for KIDS toy drive.
Honoring Our Wounded Military Foundation is among the many important charitable causes Kawasaki supports, donating a Jet Ski Ultra LX for the Honoring Our Wounded Military live auction, that helped to raise $40,000, which enabled the foundation to achieve more than $195,000 in donations for 2019.
The ALS Association’s Walk To Defeat event became close to the hearts of many Kawasaki employees in 2019, with many participating on Team Tamura in the ALS Association — Orange County Chapter event. Kawasaki helped to raise more than $1,300 for the organization in tribute to former Kawasaki President Yoshi Tamura, helping ALS Association — Orange County Chapter raise more than $283,000 in 2019.
Let the good times roll, indeed!
