"With our global vision of progress for humanity, Hyundai is proud to support organizations that are doing good for their community."

So says Brandon Ramirez, director of corporate social responsibility for Hyundai Motor America, in announcing the company's partnership with Georgia Southern University and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire.

The two organizations each received a $15,000 donation, which will be used to provide scholarships to undergraduate students in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields, as well as housing for children receiving treatment at area hospitals, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"When a child becomes seriously ill, the entire family suffers, particularly when the child is hospitalized or receives outpatient treatment far from home over an extended period of time," says Billy Sorochak, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire.

"Thanks to the generous support of Hyundai Motor America, through the Hyundai Hope initiative, so many children and families will receive both the care and comfort needed during these difficult times."
