LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 6, 2012) — Two Lexington-based charities, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council and Appalachian Regional Healthcare, will be presented Wednesday with new Toyota vehicles.
The two charities are winners in Toyota’s 100 Cars For Good, national philanthropic program that is awarding 100 cars to 100 nonprofits from a recently-completed 100-day contest. Winners were selected from May to August through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com.
Each day, during the duration of the contest, five non-profit organizations from across the U.S. were profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page where the public could vote for their favorite organization. The organization with the most votes at the end of the day won a new Toyota vehicle while the four runners-up each day received a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota. In total, 100 new Toyota vehicles and $400,000 in cash grants are being awarded to non-profit organizations across the country. Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council will receive a new Tundra pickup truck and Appalachian Regional Healthcare will take possession of a new Highlander sport utility vehicle.
Officials representing the two charities and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. will be on hand at the Green’s Toyota of Lexington dealership at 11 a.m. Wednesday for the formal presentation of the new vehicles.
