Markham, Ontario — Proving to be an automaker with an eye always on Canadian communities, Hyundai Canada has announced a donation of $50,000 to the Sun Youth Organization to support underprivileged youth in the Greater Montreal area.
“Hyundai’s shared priorities with Sun Youth—specifically preventing exclusion—allowed us to realize our vison for improving the quality of life for youth that can last a lifetime,” said Kirk Merrett, director of human resources and administration at Hyundai Canada.
“Everyone should have equal opportunity to thrive academically, and we are honoured to assist in removing some barriers to this through our donation to the Sun Youth Organization.”
The Sun Youth Organization has been a fixture in the Montreal area since 1954 by helping provide local youth and families with the resources and equipment to get involved in schooling and the local business community.
According to Hyundai’s press release, 40 percent of vulnerable individuals in Montreal are youths.
