Toyota Program Donates 100 Cars to 100 Nonprofits in 100 Days
CHAMBERSBURG, PA – November, 28, 2012 – Fitzgerald Toyota today presented a new 2013 Toyota Sienna to Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter (CVAS), as part of the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program, a major philanthropic initiative in which Toyota is giving away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days, based on votes from the public.
“As a proud member of the Chambersburg community, we are especially delighted to be a part of the Toyota 100 Cars for Good
program and applaud the incredible work that Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter provides,” said Dottie Fitzgerald, Vice President of Fitzgerald Auto Malls.
100 Cars for Good is the first Toyota initiative that engages the public to determine how corporate philanthropic donations will be awarded. Individual members of the public were able to vote for which nonprofit they believe could do the most good with a new vehicle. The program started in May 2012, and the shelter won the most votes through Facebook.
“At Toyota, we appreciate what a significant impact a new car can have for nonprofits in their work,” noted Michael Rouse, vice president of diversity, philanthropy and community affairs for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “All 100 of the winners of the 100 Cars for Good
program are providing extraordinary and much-needed services, and we thank Fitzgerald Toyota for theirrole in delivering Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter’s car to them to help them with their important work. A six-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty will also be provided for each vehicle, compliments of Toyota Financial Services.”
CVAS will use the new Toyota Sienna to help protect and provide care for homeless and abused animals in Chambersburg. The volunteers had been using their own personal vehicles.
During the holiday season and beyond, Fitzgerald Toyota will be a collection center for monetary donations and pet items for the shelter. CVAS needs pet items such as sheets, blankets, gauze, pans, etc. Pet items and donations can be dropped off at Fitzgerald Toyota at 1436 Lincoln Way East, Chambersburg, PA 17201
