Through its Dirt Brigade initiative, the company partnered with nonprofit Rebuilding Together of the Triangle.

Daedong-USA Inc. division Kioti Tractor, Wendell, North Carolina, donated heavy machinery to Rebuilding Together of the Triangle, which the nonprofit will use to provide no-cost home repairs to area residents. The donation is a part of Kioti’s Dirt Brigade initiative, a project through which Kioti seeks to empower and celebrate people using heavy machinery to give back to in-need community members.

The provided equipment includes a tractor, front-end loader, backhoe and accompanying trailer.

“Rebuilding Together of the Triangle embodies the selfless spirit of Kioti’s Dirt Brigade through its essential work in our community every single day,” says Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of Daedong-USA Inc. “We were honored to have the opportunity to support its mission through this donation and look forward to collaborating more in the future.”

Every year, RTT serves hundreds of families around the nonprofit’s North American headquarters in Wendell with home repair work, community revitalization and related projects.

“We’re on pace to provide more than 150 no-cost repairs to local residents in need this year, but we still have more than 650 families awaiting assistance,” says Dan Sargent, executive director of RTT. “KIOTI’s generous equipment donation will help our team make repairs more efficiently and assist more homeowners across the Triangle for years to come.”

Dirt Brigade was created last year as a virtual community of members using Kioti machinery to improve their communities.
