Students at Flagship Charter Academy were thrilled to receive 400 new winter coats from Hyundai Motor America and Orchards Children’s Services through the Hyundai Coats for Kids program. The school held an assembly to celebrate the donation.
“Flagship is honored to have been chosen as a recipient of the annual Coats for Kids program,” said Nicole Woods, principal at Flagship Charter Academy. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Hyundai and Orchards Children’s Services to provide our students with warm winter coats.”
Students and staff were addressed by Zafar Brooks, the director of Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity and Inclusion at Hyundai Motor America; Pete Anderson, manager of Diversity and Inclusion at Hyundai Motor America; and Michael Williams, president and CEO of Orchards Children’s Services. The presentation included the delivery of an oversized check, payable to Flagship in the value of 400 winter coats.
The Coats for Kids program takes place annually in connection with the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) to honor Hyundai’s commitment to serving the needs of the greater Detroit community.
