WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) -

Through a partnership with DonorsChoose.org, an innovative online charity that makes it easy to help students in public schools across the United States, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) and its team members have contributed more than $5,400 to 16 classroom projects in Harris County, impacting more than 700 students.

KMMG representatives recently visited the second grade class of Catherin Hehman at Park Elementary School in Hamilton, Ga. Hehman's classroom received Lego kits which the students are using to solve math problems and for building graphs.

The class also received special ergonomic seats for the students, which the teacher says have had a great impact.

"KMMG is happy to be able to fund these projects in Harris County and other locations in our region," said Randy Jackson, KMMG's senior vice president of human resources and administration. "We thank the students, teachers and administration at Park Elementary School for being an outstanding example of the benefits this partnership with DonorsChoose.org is creating throughout the area."
