Goodwill Industries named finalist in Toyota's 2012 100 Cars for Good program | Business
North Louisiana-based Goodwill Industries announces that it has been selected as one of 500 nonprofit finalists in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good program.
The automaker is giving 100 cars to 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days. Goodwill was selected as a finalist from more than 4,000 applications nationwide.
Each day, beginning May 14, 2012, 100 Cars for Good will profile five finalists at www.100carsforgood.com. The public will be able to vote for which ever nonprofit they think can do the most good with a new vehicle. The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of each day will win one of six Toyota models. Runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana will be up for consideration on Monday, June 4.
100 Cars for Good is the first initiative to directly engage the public to determine how Toyota's philanthropic donations are awarded.

Local residents are encouraged to support Goodwill and their quest for a new Toyota. If Goodwill receives the most votes and is awarded the vehicle, it will be used as a vehicle to pick up donations from small businesses, home owners, churches, and many other locations.
