KENNEWICK, WA - Back in November, NBC Right Now told you that Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities won a brand new truck!
Fast forward to Friday, during the first intermission of the Tri-City Americans' "Breast Cancer Awareness Night" game at Toyota Center, Toyota of Tri-Cities presented a new 2014 Toyota Tundra to Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities.
Habitat for Humanity was one of 100 non-profits nationwide to win a new Toyota vehicle as part of the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program.
This major philanthropic initiative recognizes organizations that touch real lives in their community and is the first Toyota initiative that engages the public and allows them to determine how corporate philanthropic donations will be awarded.
During the voting phase, which began October 1, 2013, the 100 Cars for Good program profiled five finalists at www.100carsforgood.com. Members of the public were invited to vote for which nonprofits they believed could do the most good with new vehicles. The two organizations with the most votes at the end of each day won one of five Toyota models. Runners-up each received a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
"Toyota of Tri-Cities is proud to have a role in the 100 Cars for Good program and recognize Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities for its dedication to our local community," said Porky Thomsen, Spokesperson for Toyota of Tri-Cities. "The 100 Cars for Good program allows us all to have a role in advancing charities' work, and we couldn't be happier to help Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities into a new 2014 Tundra."
