Toyota is pleased to announce that Cindy’s Hope Chest, an organization in the Charlotte area that provides emotional and financial support to women battling breast cancer, has been selected as a winner of Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program. 100 Cars for Good is a major new philanthropic initiative from the automaker that is awarding 100 cars to 100 U.S. nonprofits over the course of 100 days.

Cindy’s Hope Chest (located in Indian Trail, NC) will receive a new Toyota Highlander, which will be used to transport women to doctor’s appointments and treatments and help them with their errands. The organization was selected as one of 500 finalists from thousands of applications nationwide and picked as a winner through a public vote on Facebook. Runners-up in the program each receive $1,000. Additional details on 100 Cars for Good as well as information on all of the program’s finalists are available at www.carsforgood.com.

“The outpouring of support and interest in the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program has been tremendous,” said Jim Wiseman, Group Vice President of Toyota Motor North America, Inc. “It is amazing to see how this program has brought individuals, organizations and communities together. We are equally excited to see Cindy’s Hope Chest utilize their new vehicle to make an even greater impact in the community.”

Public voting began on May 9 and continues for 100 consecutive days. Each day, five organizations are profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page and voters may vote for the nonprofit they feel is most deserving of the vehicle. A vehicle will be awarded each day through August 16. Voters may place one vote per day, each day, over the course of the program.

Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program is a key part of the company’s philanthropy efforts, which have contributed more than half a billion dollars to U.S. nonprofits since 1991. For more information on these commitments, please visit http://www.toyota.com/about/philanthropy/.>
