Third Annual Toyota 100 Cars For Good Program Continues To Impact Nonprofits' Work

"Our Sienna Mobility van supports our core mission to provide individuals in wheelchairs with opportunities that help them fully experience their communities," said Chris Adams, executive director of Ohio-based Stepping Stones. "We hope more organizations like ours will take advantage of this wonderful Toyota program and benefit from the inspiring support of their communities like we did."

Empowering Communities

The 100 Cars for Good program is the first Toyota initiative that engages the public to determine how its philanthropic donations will be awarded. Over the last 20 years, Toyota has contributed nearly $700 million to nonprofits throughout the U.S., with core priorities on safety, education and the environment.

For the Massachusetts-based nonprofit All Hands Volunteer, its new Toyota Tundra was essential when disaster struck the Northeast.

"Within 48 hours of Superstorm Sandy, our volunteers were in the new truck driving south toward Staten Island to help affected families," said David Campbell, executive director of the organization, which used its vehicle to help clear homes after the devastating storm. "By establishing 100 Cars for Good, Toyota helps identify groups like ours with huge needs for vehicles. It makes so much more possible."

Last year, the 500 finalists inspired thousands of people to go online and select winners. Those who voted learned about organizations around the country and their unique approaches to making communities better places to live.

"For us, the Toyota vehicle helps our staff members drive animals to classrooms so kids can feel the snake's scales or touch a parrot's feathers," said Thane Maynard, director of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden that won a Prius v last year. "That authentic experience can open a world of curiosity, and ultimately, foster a greater appreciation for nature and wildlife. The Prius v helps us get there to open minds."
