Toyota USA is beginning the second run of its widely successful philanthropic program, 100 Cars for Good, where Toyota will award up to 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days to 100 U.S. nonprofits (eligible 501c3 organizations nonprofit Native American or Alaskan tribes with sovereignty). The application submission period ends on March 26th, so be sure your organization submits the application for 100 Cars for Good located at http://on.fb.me/100CarsForGood.
Finalists will compete to win one of six Toyota models, including the Camry Hybrid, Highlander, Prius v, Sienna minivan, Sienna Mobility or Tundra full-sized pickup truck. In communities across the country, vehicles from the first year of 100 Cars for Good are making a significant difference. These include:
- Ensuring that a soup kitchen in Morristown, New Jersey can pick up food donations that used to be turned away due to a lack of transportation, allowing it to provide meals and food to even more people in need;
- Helping a program near Detroit provide horseback riding visits for kids with cancer; and
- Supporting the efforts of a nonprofit in Wilmington, North Carolina to train and deliver service dogs to wounded veterans.
