TORRANCE, Calif. (August 2, 2012)– Toyota today announced the third group of winners of Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a national philanthropic program that is awarding 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 consecutive days. Winners are selected each day through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com.
 
Each day through August 21, five nonprofit organizations will be profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page. Registered Facebook users are able to vote once daily for the nonprofit they think can do the most good for the community with a new vehicle. The organization with the most votes at the end of the day wins a new Toyota vehicle. The four runners-up each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
 
“As we approach close of 100 Cars for Good, it is exciting and humbling to see how many communities and organizations Toyota touches through this program,” said Jim Lentz, president and chief executive officer of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “With hundreds of thousands of votes through the program thus far, it’s clear that the public is  engaged and invested in seeing Toyota vehicles make their way into the community. We look forward to seeing what the last leg of the 2012 program will bring.”
 
The majority of the third group of 25 winners (the first 25 winners were announced in June and the second group in early July) provide services in a variety of areas, including: animal welfare, education, food banks, and human services for children and adults.
