"The Hyundai COVID-19 Drive-thru testing grants are designed to get urgent financial support to institutions on the front-line in the fight against the coronavirus," says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. "Children who are diagnosed with cancer are particularly at higher risk. That's why it was important to us to join forces with several children's hospitals around the nation to company this threat to the health and well-being of children. We are pleased to expand to 11 institutions nationwide, each with a $200,000 grant."

The COVID-19 pandemic has tragically impacted the lives of nearly 100,000 people in the U.S. Our society has been challenged with significant consequences to life, happiness and well-being, including the protection of and care for children.
