Coastal Kia Community Support
At Coastal Kia, we’re committed to delivering more than just transportation to our community. We are proud to host a number of outreach events aimed at supporting worthy causes, raising awareness of important issues and bringing joy to the community we call home.
Our History of Giving Back to Wilmington
Wilmington Housing Authority
Coastal Kia partnered with the Wilmington Housing Authority and delivered 100 meals (whole turkeys, vegetables, potatoes, etc.) to 7 different Low Income housing areas throughout Wilmington. The Wilmington Housing Authority identified families within each area that they felt are most in need of the meals. The communities included: Hillcrest, Houston Moore, Glover Plaza, Vesta Village, Creekwood Homes, Rankin Terrace and the Family Self-Sufficiency Program. The Wilmington Housing Authority will have a Press Release available soon.
Look Before You Lock
Vehicle safety is among our priorities, and one of our initiatives aims to raise awareness about children and pets being left behind in the car, particularly on hot summer days. We team up with the Wilmington Police Department to provide tags that hang in the rearview mirror to remind drivers to check the backseat before leaving the vehicle.
Stop Summer Hunger Event
During Summer 2020, Coastal Kia was proud to join WECT and the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in the fight against child hunger in the Wilmington area. The virtual food drive resulted in $51,088.48 raised, which exceeded the event’s goal! Every dollar donated provides 5 meals. We look forward to this annual event next summer.

Wilmington Police Department Food Truck Event
On August 6th, Coastal Kia catered food for Wilmington officers with a popular, local food truck.
Taste of Wrightsville Beach
Each fall, Coastal Kia sponsors an annual Taste of Wrightsville Beach food festival featuring local cuisine, beer, wine and celebrity judges. All net proceeds benefit Wilmington’s Weekend Meals on Wheels program, and in 2019 we donated $5,000.
In August of 2019, we hosted a large pet adoption event that saw 26 dogs, cats, and bunnies find a new home. The animals were provided by local rescue groups and shelters and the event was sponsored by Petsmart, Heidi’s Home For Homeless Animals, Woofgang Bakery, and Pet Paradise.
