Since it opened for business in 1957, Toyota has been giving back. To date, Toyota has donated over half a billion dollars to nonprofit organizations all across the country. They have several ongoing philanthropic campaigns that they participate in, such as Toyota Driving Expectations, which is a free safety program that puts teens and their parents through real-world driving scenarios to better prepare them. Toyota also has several other philanthropic programs, and this year they are continuing the great work they did last year with 100 Cars for Good!
Last year, Toyota gave 100 cars to nonprofit organizations that were voted on by the public. These organizations varied from soup kitchens, to service dog programs, to children’s hospices. &This year, they’re doing it again!
Do you know of a nonprofit organization that would benefit from a new, free car? Be sure to encourage them to apply! Starting March 12, 2012 and lasting either until March 26, 2012 or when 5,000 applications have been received, whichever comes first, organizations can apply for their chance at a new car. Voting will again be done by the public, and will begin on May 14, 2012.
