Vote for local non-profit to win a new car

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  One local non-profit could win a new Toyota with a little help from you.

The Edith Bishel Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is in the "Toyota 100 Cars for Good" contest.  Each day for 100 days, Toyota is featuring five non-profits and you have to vote for which one gets the car.  The Edith Bishel Center is up for the vote this Friday. 

The Independent Living Skills Teacher, Sheila Turner, says they need the car because they cover a lot of ground in Eastern Washington.  She explains, "In six different counties, if you go from one end to the other of all of them, it's over 11,000 miles."  Turner is visually impaired herself and travels with the help of a volunteer who drives his own personal car.  "I was able to see 327 clients last year, so a car would really help out, especially with the gas money, especially with the gas money, and especially with the wear and tear on my driver's own personal vehicle," she says. 

The Edith Bishel Center is up for the vote this Friday, May 27th.  You must vote on that date, but you can go to Toyota's Facebook page now and set up a reminder to vote on Friday.  Click here.
