Vote to help Safehouse win Toyota vehicle

FROM STAFF REPORTS

PELHAM — SafeHouse of Shelby County, based in Pelham, is one of 500 finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, which will award vehicles to 100 nonprofit organizations based on votes from the public.

Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program is showcasing five non-profit organizations each day for 100 days on Toyota’s Facebook page, Facebook.com/toyota. Visitors to the page can vote once a day for the organization that they feel is most deserving of a new Toyota vehicle.

SafeHouse will be one of the five organizations highlighted for voting on July 22, 2011.

If SafeHouse receives the most votes and is awarded a new Toyota Sienna, it will be used to transport a daily average of 30-45 women and children staying at the Domestic Violence Shelter to school, medical, dental, mental health and other appointments; to work and job interviews; to court hearings and to file for protection orders; and for recreational activities for children.
