100 Cars For Goodclose
What if people who do good, could do even more? That’s the idea behind Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good. Each year, we give away 100 cars to 100 worthy organizations that could really use a new set of wheels, and let people vote to decide who gets them. That’s right – the winners are chosen by folks like you who vote for their favorite organizations via Facebook.
Through the 100 Cars for Good program, Toyota puts people in the “driver’s seat“ to help community organizations broaden their already invaluable impact in neighborhoods nationwide. Check out the stories above by flipping through the photos and videos and learn about some of the good things past winners all across the U.S. – from Lincoln, Nebraska to Manchester, New Hampshire to Washington, D.C. – are doing with their new Toyotas.
You’ll learn about people like Leslie, a retired Army captain, who credits her dog Isaac – brought to her by one of our 2011 winners, Carolina Canines for Service – with helping her rekindle her zest for life and come back stronger. Other non-profits, such as Michigan-based Camp Casey, have been able to expand the geographical reach of their services exponentially because of their new vehicles. In New Jersey, the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center of Morristown can now use its new Sienna minivan to easily pick up fresh food from donors and transport canned goods from its nearby storage facility – essential activities they were unable to do before having a vehicle.
It’s clear from all these powerful stories that just one car can make a big difference. So imagine the good one hundred cars could do. To learn more about what the program is doing in communities near you, follow 100 Cars for Good on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com and on Twitter at #100cars.
