What do you get when you add up 100 non-profits, 100 new Toyota vehicles and 100 days? The Toyota "100 Cars for Good" program. Company officials have given the generous initiative the green light for 2012 and thus Toyota will be delivering automotive donations to deserving organizations around the nation once again.
In case you aren't familiar with the "100 Cars for Good" program, this is the second year that the automaker will provide vehicles to non-profits in order to help them carry out daily functions. Michael Rouse, Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Affairs for Toyota, announced the news at the recent Chicago Auto Show. Speaking on the motivation behind this program, Rouse says, "At Toyota, we appreciate what a big difference a new car can make for organizations working to improve lives and strengthen communities across the country."1
To decide which non-profits receive the new Toyota vehicles, the automaker calls on its social media hubs. Those interested in providing input can head to the Toyota Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/toyota) and start applying as soon as March 12. Past organizations to benefit from "100 Cars for Good" include soup kitchens, service dog programs, child support centers, and animal therapy programs.
Not only will the selected organizations be receiving a brand new automobile for free, but they will be given the comfort of knowing their new Toyota vehicle is built to last. More specifically, winners will have a choice between six models: Camry Hybrid, Highlander, Prius v, Sienna (minivan or mobility), and Tundra.

If you know a great non-profit that deserves a new vehicle, feel free to swing by 85 State Hwy 17 Wood Ridge, NJ 07075 and let us know or head to the automaker's Facebook page and apply as soon as possible.
