Las Vegas based HELP of Southern Nevada announced today that it has been selected as one of 500 nonprofit finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days. HELP of Southern Nevada was selected as a finalist from more than 4,000 applications nationwide.
Each day, beginning May 14, 2012, 100 Cars for Good will profile five finalists at www.100carsforgood.com. Individual members of the public will be able to vote for which ever nonprofit they think can do the most good with a new vehicle. The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of each day will win one of six Toyota models. Runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
HELP of Southern Nevada will be up for consideration on Wednesday, July 4 from 7 a.m. PST to 8:59 p.m. PST.
“Everyone at HELP of Southern Nevada is thrilled to have been selected as a finalist for the 2012 100 Cars for Good program,” said Fuilala Riley, HELP of Southern Nevada vice president & chief operations officer. “We’re grateful for this incredible opportunity to hopefully win a Toyota Sienna Mobility Van. We hope everyone will help us spread the word now and, of course, will make time to visit www.100carsforgood.com on July 4 to vote for us.”
“At Toyota, we appreciate what a significant impact a new car can have for nonprofits nationwide,” noted Michael Rouse, vice president of philanthropy for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “Toyota has donated more than half a billion dollars to nonprofits across the U.S. over the past 20 years, and 100 Cars for Good allows us to expand that commitment to local communities in important new ways. The 500 finalists are an extraordinary group, and we look forward to the public learning more about them.”
100 Cars for Good is the first initiative to directly engage the public to determine how Toyota’s philanthropic donations are awarded.
