FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 14, 2020 -- Today, Hyundai Hope On Wheels (HHOW) is proud to announce that it has enabled more than one million COVID-19 tests by funding 23 testing sites nationwide.

"We are grateful for the tireless work of the healthcare workers on the frontlines of the pandemic that made this milestone possible," said Kevin Reilly, Board Member of Hyundai Hope On Wheels and President of Alexandria Hyundai.
