Taking Pride in Texasclose
At Toyota we’re invested in more than making great vehicles. We’re invested in serving the communities where we work and live. Since the economic downturn began in 2009, Toyota has had zero layoffs of our manufacturing team members. Instead, we’ve used downtime in production to reinvest in our team and help the communities we call home. Thousands of Toyota employees across the U.S. have put their talents to work helping others. In 2010, team members from our San Antonio plant joined local partner, United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, to lend a hand to area agencies like the St. Peter – St. Joseph Children’s Home. At “St. PJ’s,” as it’s affectionately known, Toyota volunteers rolled up their sleeves and tackled projects that ranged from painting to landscaping to helping clients. The staff and children of St. PJ’s aren’t the only ones to appreciate our team members’ efforts. In June 2011, the United Way named TMMTX Large Business Volunteers of the Year for our continuing efforts and partnership with them.
