Nebraska Non-Profit Organizations Receive Free Vehicles

Last week three Nebraska non-profit organizations received free vehicles courtesy of Toyota’s “100 Cars For Good” national program. The celebration at Performance Toyota of Lincoln included Lincoln-based Food Bank of Lincoln and Lighthouse After School Program, as well as Arbor Day Farm of Nebraska City.

The much-publicized “100 Cars For Good” program is responsible for awarding 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days to deserving nonprofit organizations across America, based on votes from the public.

The Food Bank of Lincoln works with the Center for People in Need to sponsor mobile pantries at five sites each week in Lincoln. Called Neighborhood FOOD, it is held at community gathering places in some of Lincoln’s poorest areas and currently serves approximately 1,300 families per week. Foodbank of Lincoln has selected a Highlander Hybrid as their vehicle.

The Lighthouse After-School Program offers academic support to middle and high school kids, evening meals and enrichment/recreational activities during non-school hours, Monday through Friday, year-round. It has also chosen a new Highlander Hybrid.

The Arbor Day Farm is a 260-acre public destination that features an array of natural attractions and amenities.  With conservation at its heart, Arbor Day Farm enables visitors to engage the environment in enjoyable ways, while educating them on the wonders and complexity of the natural world.  Arbor Day Farm will receive a Sienna minivan.
