Gulfport nonprofit wins new Toyota as part of 100 Cars for Good
Toyota recently kicked off 100 Cars for Good, an initiative that will award a new car to 100 nonprofits through late August.
Among the first 25 organizations to receive a car was Feed My Sheep, a faith-based program that provides nourishment to the homeless, homebound and the needy in the Gulfport area.
Winners are determined by an online vote on www.100carsforgood.com and via Facebook. Feed My Sheep learned June 7 that it had beaten four other nonprofits for the right to a new Toyota. (Toyota will profile five nonprofits on its 100 Cars for Good Facebook page each day until August 21 before users vote for who should receive a car.)
Winning is a big deal for Feed My Sheep. According to the organization’s website, it delivered 7,504 meals to the homebound in May 2012. A new Toyota could certainly help with that part of Feed My Sheep’s outreach.
