Toyota Motor Sales, USA Toyota strives to assist the communities where we live and work by supporting local organizations focused on the areas of environment, education and safety. In addition, we engage with diverse communities and support initiatives in other areas of need, such as food, housing, and the arts, that enrich and enhance the lives of the people who live there.
Toyota has given over half-a-billion dollars to non-profit organizations in the U.S., and each year, we commit at least 25 percent of our giving to organizations and programs that support diverse communities – a goal we are surpassing. In 2011, Toyota's philanthropic donations exceeded more than $600 million in the U.S. and nearly 45 percent supported ethnically diverse led organizations and populations.
The Salvation Army Denby Center for Children and Family Services The Salvation Army Denby Center for Children and Family Services has been a refuge for children and families in times of crisis for almost 90 years. Currently, the Center shelters and serves up to 200 residents – primarily single women and single mothers; we also serve single fathers and whole families. These individuals have become victims of unfortunate life circumstances such as house fire, job loss, foreclosure or domestic violence. The Denby Center provides residents with shelter for up to 90 days. While in the shelter, residents are able to receive different types of assistance from housing placement assistance, to providing training preparation for future independent life. Special support services are also available to those in need such as utility assistance, down payment assistance toward first month's rent, food and clothing assistance. Through our services, we seek to encourage and empower each individual to achieve their unique potential and to strengthen the family unit.
