Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2014
With the completion of their 13th Give Back campaign, which ran through the dealership’s Facebook page, Westchester Toyota has reached the $33,000 level in the amount of contributions they have made to needy Westchester organizations. Since beginning the Give Back Campaign in 2011 Westchester Toyota has partnered up with over 36 local Westchester County organizations in an effort to build a better Westchester.
Every 90 days Westchester Toyota selects 3 local non-profit organizations to participate in a campaign on Facebook. The participating non-profits then get their local advocates to vote for their specific organization on Facebook.
At the end of the 90 day cycle Westchester Toyota makes a $1500 donation to the organization that gets the most votes. In an effort to make sure every local non-profit wins when participating, Westchester Toyota also makes a $750 donation to the second place organization and $500 to the final participant.
The worthy organizations for this quarter were:
Grand Prize $1500 - Ronald McDonald House of Greater Hudson Valley
The mission of The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley is to provide a temporary home-away-from-home for families with critically ill or traumatically injured children. We achieve our mission through the quality and experience of our staff and volunteers, as well as the community support we receive to sustain the House.
1st Runner Up $750 – The Mental Health Association of Westchester
