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
Coastal Kia is a proud sponsor of the Azalea Festival, a great event supporting the local Wilmington community. As a part of Wilmington, we love to be involved in the community and culture that the Azalea Festival shows the best of. Getting to meet the neighbors we show quality vehicles to is very rewarding and we’ll continue to support the local culture however we can.
Wrightsville Beach Polar Plunge
Coastal Kia is a proud sponsor of Wrightsville Beach Polar Plunge! The Wrightsville Plunge benefits Communities in Schools of Cape Fear and it helps students continue their education and be on the path towards graduation.
Toys for Tots
Coastal Kia was able to bring joy to children this holiday season through their fundraising efforts with Toys for Tots.
Taste of Wrightsville Beach
As title Sponsor of the Ninth Annual Taste of Wrightsville Beach, Coastal Kia is proud to continue its commitment to Weekend Meals on Wheels.
Celebrating the island’s culinary fare, the Taste of Wrightsville Beach features over 35 unique food, wine, and beer tasting booths. This year’s festival was held on November 5th from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM beneath a huge, heated tent at the Bluewater Grill parking lot.
Celebrity Judges chose a “Best in Show” and the public chose a recipient for their “People’s Choice” award.
All net proceeds went to Weekend Meals on Wheels. For more information, visit https://www.weekendmealsonwheels.org/taste-of-wrightsville-beach.

Wrightsville Beach Sweetheart Run Sponsor
Valentine’s Day 2022 5k and 10k Fund Raising event for the Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation
Coastal Kia is proud to continue its sponsorship of the Wrightsville Beach Valentine Run. 2022 marks the 7th annual 5K and 10K run fund raising event, with proceeds supporting the Wrightsville Beach Parks & Recreation Department. This department in turn supports a variety of community outreach programs, activities, and events throughout the year!
Toys For Tots
Coastal Kia prides itself on helping Toys for Tots every holiday season! Toys for Tots helps bring the joy of Christmas to less-fortunate children in the area.
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.
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.
