Our N. Charlotte Toyota dealership has always highly valued community involvement and providing much-needed resources for those who don’t have them. That’s why we’re so proud of the Toyota “100 Cars For Good” giveaway – 100 days during which Toyota will give away 100 vehicles to nonprofit organizations who need them! This year, six different vehicles are up for grabs – the Toyota Camry Hybrid, Prius, Highlander, Sienna, Sienna Mobility, and Tundra.
How does “100 Cars For Good” work? Basically, a car is given to a charity every day for 100 days based on the votes of you and I – all we have to do is log into Facebook, find the “100 Cars For Good” app, and vote for the charity we think is most deserving of a new Toyota vehicle. The giveaway actually began way back in March, when thousands of charitable organizations entered themselves into the running by explaining what they do and why they need a new ride, and an independent panel reviewed their applications. This panel was composed of judges deemed “socially conscious”, and the members were hard pressed to choose just 500 finalists after a careful review process. The nonprofits were then notified, and it was their job to use the helpful toolkit that Toyota provided to excite their supporters and garner votes.
Toyota of N. Charlotte considers the next part of the process the most exciting. The 500 charities were split into 100 groups of five – one group for each of the 100 days. Every day from May 14th until August 21st, five charities are up for votes, and one will be chosen to receive the new Toyota car they’ve been waiting for! To soften the blow for the other four nonprofits, they’ll each receive a $1,000 grant, which can go a long way!
Toyota of N. Charlotte Presents Toyota Highlander Hybrid to N. Mecklenburg Animal Rescue
Last year, N Charlotte Toyota was lucky enough to be able to take part in the “100 Cars For Good” giveaway. Our N. Charlotte Toyota dealership was chosen to present the North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue with a new Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited! The Highlander Hybrid was a perfect vehicle for the animal rescue, as it’s comfortably large enough to shuttle the animals back and forth between vet appointments, the shelter, and the animals’ new homes. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid also is environmentally friendly, utilizing Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive to keep emissions as low as possible. Not to mention, it saves the animal rescue major pennies at the pump!
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited also comes with plush features like a swish leather interior, multi-information display with an integrated backup camera, and three-zone automatic climate control to keep our furry friends comfortable even in the most extreme weather. (If you’d like to learn more about the eco-sensitive SUV, come down to our Toyota dealership near Charlotte today!) In addition to being the proud presenters of the new Toyota, we also set up donation boxes so our customers could drop off pet food, beds, and other supplies. We even hosted an adoption even the day of the ceremony to help some of the animals find new homes! (Mr. Toyota loved it.)
