Everyone expects the impact of the Hyundai Motor Group’s first electric vehicle plant to be every bit as big as the promised 8,100 jobs and $5.5 billion in economic investment, and not just on Bryan County.

But the automaker has also promised to provide “corporate social responsibility programs focused on enriching the lives of humankind,” according to a summary of the agreement HMG signed with the state in May.

Savannah and Bryan County will get a first look at two of those programs, Hyundai Hope and Genesis Gives, on Friday and Saturday.

At 11:30 a.m. Friday, Hyundai representatives will be at the Children’s Hospital of Savannah to make a donation to Safekids Savannah, a program “under the arm of Memorial Health Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah,” according to a media advisory. Later Friday, Genesis Motor North America – a Hyundai Motor Group brand – will make a donation to the Frank Callen Boys & Girls Club of Savannah.

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Hyundai Hope and the Children’s Hospital of Savannah Will be at Kids Safety Day in J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill, where they’ll partner with Richmond Hill and Bryan County first responders to put on a Safety Day Event.

The public is invited. Hyundai reportedly hopes to begin production at the Black Creek Mega-Site EV plant in 2024.
