From June 9-18, more than 250 Indiana Auto Plant (IAP) associates will join more than 20,000 volunteers across North America participating in Honda’s second annual National Week of Service. Building on Honda’s strong tradition of community service, National Week of Service allows Honda associates, dealers and suppliers to conduct volunteer service activities to make a positive impact on their communities.
“Through this coordinated week of volunteer projects across North America, we are joining Honda in reinforcing the Team Honda spirit of working together to make a difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Bob Nelson, IAP President. “We are happy to partner with local organizations to make a positive impact in the community we call home.”
The Week of Service is timed to coincide with the company’s Founder’s Day, which marks the establishment of the first Honda business operation in North America on June 11, 1959. Below are a few of the 2017 Week of Service projects taking place locally:
- 25 IAP associates will walk in the Indy Pride Parade
- 10 IAP associates will volunteer at Asian Fest at the Indiana State Museum
- 20 IAP associates will cook and serve meals to families staying at the Ronald McDonald
- 22 IAP associates will volunteer at Bread of Life in Greensburg preparing and serving meals, as well as going out into the community to deliver meals to those who cannot come to the center.
- 125 IAP associates will give blood to the Indiana Blood Center during the plant’s annual on-site blood drive.
