HSHV to Get Keys to a New Toyota Sienna Van on Nov. 14th
The Humane Society of Huron Valley was a winner in the Toyota's 100 Cars for Good program, which awarded vehicles to 100 nonprofit organizations based on votes from the public.
Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program showcased five non-profit organizations each day for 100 days on Toyota’s Facebook page, facebook.com/toyota. Visitors to the page voted for the organization that they felt was the most deserving of a new Toyota vehicle. The Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV) received the most votes on their voting day which was Saturday, August 6, 2011. The new Sienna van was delivered to Dunning Toyota and is now ready.
The new Sienna Van will be used by our HSHV Rescue and Cruelty department to help save hundreds more animals in need in our community. “We are honored that so many people voted for HSHV because they saw the need to help the abused and discarded animals,” said Deb Kern, HSHV Marketing Director. “Our Rescue and Cruelty staff members are excited to finally have a reliable vehicle that will allow them to do their jobs more efficiently.”
Dunning Toyota is going to celebrate with HSHV by holding a “Pet Food Drive” at their location leading up the delivery of the keys to van to HSHV representatives on Monday, November 14 at 3:00 p.m. Members of the community are asked to bring dog and cat food to Dunning Toyota all day Monday, November 14th. HSHV is mostly in need of dry and wet cat food. Go to http://www.hshv.org/documents/WishList.pdf to see a list of items from the HSHV “Wish List”. Please help fill the New Sienna Van with Food donations!
“Dunning Toyota has been a proud supporter of the Humane Society of Huron valley since the 1980's. We have and always will be committed to supporting our community,” said Eric Brower, Sales Manager at Dunning Toyota. “We are a "pet friendly" dealership, many of our employee’s even hand out treats to our customer's pets while they are visiting the dealership for both sales and service.”
Besides being a drop-off site for pet food donations, Dunning Toyota will also donate $100 to HSHV for each car that is sold from Thursday, November 10, 2011, through Monday, November 14, 2011 at 9:00 P.M.
