New Year Thank You from Santa Fe Kia!
“We rely as much on the community coming out to do business with us as we do to serve, support, and give back to our community.” – Morley Fletcher, Owner Santa Fe Kia
Thank you for your trust in us. We value the importance of community and love supporting our local communities. As a two-generation, family-run business, we feel good to be a part of something larger than ourselves. With three family members working in our dealership on St. Michael’s Drive, you can be assured Santa Fe Kia is fully invested in our beautiful community.
We love seeing the looks on people’s faces when they get a new car! But beyond that, did you know that Santa Fe Kia actively supports an abundance of local organizations which benefit our communities?
We thank you for your support in 2022! Together, we created great impact through volunteering and sponsorship of several local organizations that support youth in our community.
In 2022, we renewed our support as sponsor of the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe event, The Burning of Zozobra. Joining several local businesses and individuals to raise money for local nonprofits, we celebrated the fundraising burning of Old Man Gloom!
One of our most exciting fundraising events last year was the 5th annual fall fundraiser, Cars For Kids Trunk or Treat Car Show. This classic car show raises critical funds to support the Children’s Miracle Network and the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital.
These funds help sick and injured kids in our community have a more positive experience during their treatments and healthcare. The UNM Hospital program, The Connected Academy, allows hospitalized children to keep up with their studies until their health improves and they can return to school.
"It's life-changing for these kids. Every kid that is going to come through the program is going to have a future now they didn't have before. The chances of you missing one year of school and graduating are pretty thin, especially when you have other obstacles. For all these kids that come through here, it's completely life-changing." – Jeremy Abshire, Mimbres School Principal (as quoted in UNM Health Sciences Newsroom, “From Patient To Pupil")
Santa Fe KIA is the main sponsor of Sports Primo, your Northern New Mexico live streaming sports network. Its goal is to positively promote student athletes in all athletics, including football, volleyball, and softball. It also provides online sports storage and archiving of high school sports events from Rio Rancho to Española throughout all of Northern New Mexico.
By supporting The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, we help to promote local businesses in Santa Fe and surrounding areas. We love cooperatively fostering a positive climate for economic development and community improvement efforts with issues such as transportation and healthcare access.
In addition, by partnering with The Carbon Offset Company, Santa Fe Kia plants 15 trees for every new or preowned vehicle we sell all year round! The average vehicle emits over 10,000 lbs of carbon per year, whereas the growth of 15 new trees more than offsets this amount of carbon. Drive carbon-neutral with us and make a difference for all of us!
It’s no wonder our family-owned dealership has become so beloved by locals – Santa Fe Kia truly cares about its customers and the community it serves. With our commitment to excellence, friendly atmosphere, and dedication to giving back, we look forward to being a good neighbor of yours in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico for many years to come.
Thank you for all you do from your locally owned Family KIA Dealership!
