2014 Toyota Tundra Takes Arizona Veterans HomePosted on March 27th, 2014
100 Cars for Good helps philanthropic organizations deliver more
By Nina Russin
For the past three years, Toyota has donated 100 cars to philanthropic organizations ranging from educational outreach to soup kitchens to help them better fulfill their missions. Recipients of the vehicles are selected during an online contest each November, during which members of the general public are invited to vote for the organizations they believe are most worthy of Toyota’s support.
This year, two Arizona organizations received Toyota vehicles as part of the program: U.S. Vets-Phoenix and Mt. Graham Safe House Crisis in Safford. U.S. Vets will be using its new Tundra to move returning veterans into new homes and distribute water to the homeless during the hot Phoenix, Arizona summer.
John Scott, executive director of U.S. Vets, commented: “Since we received the truck, I have already received four calls from veterans that needed assistance moving their belongings.ˇThe Toyota Tundra will definitely continue to see a lot of use as we continue on with our mission of ending veteran homelessness.”
Other winners of the 2014 100 Cars for Good program include One Simple Wish of Trenton, New Jersey, an organization that helps foster children avoid homelessness through adoption, an Alabama-based organization that teaches coaches disabled children in watersports and an animal rescue group in rural Wyoming.
