Toyota Teams with Latinx Nonprofits to Give $1M to COVID-19 Relief

June 3rd, 2020 by


Toyota cares about its customers and their communities, and it’s been working to give back during this challenging moment in history. In April, Toyota Motor North America announced that it would be reallocating $1 million in funds earmarked for several Latinx nonprofits to help their COVID-19 relief efforts.

Partners include the Hispanic Federation, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, League of United Latin American Citizens, East Los Angeles Community Union Education Foundation, UnidosUS, and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Funding for these organizations will now be used to help aid in the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Together, we can help reach more people with the critical information and resources they need,” said Al Smith, group vice president and Chief Social Innovation Officer, Toyota Motor North America. “We want our partners and communities to know that we are here for them now and beyond the crisis.”

According to Toyota, the $1 million will be used for a variety of causes. The Hispanic Federation will use its money for the COVID-19 Latino Nonprofit Emergency Assistance Fund and for food relief, UnidosUS will use its money to provide the Latinx community with up-to-date information on how to stay safe and healthy, and the USHCC will help provide economic relief for Hispanic and Minority-Owned Small Businesses.
