We are the Home of the United Way of Delaware's FREE Kia Soul!


Drew Baker, sales consultant at AutoTeam Delaware, had some assistance this year in selecting the winner of the 2019 Kia Forte for the United Way of Delaware's fund raising efforts! Winner presentation will take place soon with more details to come! We are proud to continue to support the United Way of Delaware!



Congratulations to Sue Barbetta of Newark, Delaware, winner of the 2018 Kia Soul United Way Workplace Campaign Fundraising Event! Sue, an elementary school teacher who claims she has "never won anything" was very happy to hear the news that she won. Sue increased her donation amount through her workplace giving in 2018, which entered her for a chance to win the 2018 Kia Soul.

2016 marks the 4th year in a row that our Kia of Wilmington store has partnered with the United way of Delaware in their fundraising campaigns to select a winner of the New Kia vehicle, and in this year's case, TWO winners! The 2016 'Do More 24' United Way campaign winner was Shai Harris, who's affiliation with the campaign was through the Kingswood Community Center of Wilmington Delaware; which actually received some of the most support during the Do More 24 campaign. The 2016 Drive for Delaware United Way campaign winner was Carla Morris, an assistant professor in the University of Delaware's Associate in Arts Program in Dover, Delaware. The United Way of Delaware's work of focusing on reading by third grade, college and career readiness, and financial stability and empowerment in communities makes all of Delaware better, and it is a simple choice for AutoTeam Delaware and Kia of Wilmington to support the United Way of Delaware. Congratulations to each of the 2016 winners, and our sincerest thanks to the United Way of Delaware for their partnership.



In 2015, Kia of Wilmington donated the 2015 Kia Optima to the United Way of Delaware in support of its annual fundraising campaign. It was the third year in a row that Kia of Wilmington has made such a generous donation. The 2015 Drive for Delaware raffle raised approximately $591,000 for community programs and initiatives. Over the course of the last three years, the United Way of Delaware and AutoTeam of Delaware / Kia of Wilmington partnership has raised more than $1.6 million in total funds. "I'd like to thank United Way of Delaware," said 2015 United Way of Delaware Contestant Winner Dr. Murphy, "I've personally given to the United Way of Delaware every year for decades and I'm a strong believer in the organization United Way. They have some incredible programs in this state... I see their work everyday in my work. I think it's probably the greatest cause I could give to."


In 2014, the United Way of Delaware's "Drive For Delaware" campaign winner was Gary E. Dowlin, a long-time UPS employee, who won a brand new 2014 Kia Soul!  UPS, one of the United Way's longest contributing donors, was very excited to see one of their employees win the new Soul!

The Drive for Delaware raffle was a special addition to United Way of Delaware's 2014 fundraising campaign, and brought in nearly 3,000 contributors and over $570,000 for the community.  Thanks to the United Way of Delaware, and Congratulations, again, Gary!



In 2013, the United Way of Delaware & Kia of Wilmington presented a brand new 2013 Kia Soul to Linda DiSabatino, winner of the United Way's 2013 campaign.  Linda, a Catholic Charities worker and 39-year contributor to the United Way, couldn't have been a better recipient!


"I'm very, very excited. I have never ever won anything in my life so it's been a week, and I'm still not sure about it," she says. "Catholic Charities was one of the first recipients of United Way funding way back when so it's a nice connection," she says.

Vice President of United Way John Moore is proud to give back to a long-time donor.  "And what a great way to receive this, someone's who been donating for 39 years, and all the work she's been doing, selflessly, giving to the United Way what a great gesture to give back," says Moore.

General Manager for AutoTeam Delaware, Matthew Kersey, looks forward to helping with the raffle again.  "It felt really good. Most of the other times when you see car giveaways, there's some kind of contest, and it was really nice to see someone actually get it, and also someone who's so involved with United Way," says Kersey.

All the donations from the raffle benefit United Way's Community Impact Fund that addresses education, income, and health.
