In the aftermath of the April 28 tornado that struck Northeast Mississippi, Toyota asked how they could help those in need. The answer shaped itself in the form of almost $86,000 donated by Toyota, near site suppliers and team members.
Toyota Mississippi and its team members collectively donated more than $35,000 to volunteer organizations responding to tornado relief efforts in North Mississippi. The donation included a company donation of $20,000 to the Northeast Mississippi Chapter of the American Red Cross and $15,000 from Toyota team members and the company’s dollar-for-dollar donation match program.
In addition to monetary donations, Toyota and supplier team members volunteered 1,445 hours of personal time removing debris from damaged areas.
