Toyota celebrated Martin Luther King Day by donating both to Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) as well as to The Salvation Army.

The former received a total of $50,000 split between five HBCUs, including Bowie State University, Delaware State University, Howard University, Morehouse College, and Morgan State University. The money will go toward addressing critical issues that impact student retention and creating a bright future for underserved youths.

Muller Toyota was also happy to learn the automaker donated $15,000 to The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command, in addition to providing new all-weather boots and socks to the residents of The Salvation Army Turning Point Center for Women and Children and select participants at The Salvation Army Sherman Avenue Corps, helping many low-income families who would otherwise have no means to stay warm during the cold winter.

“At Toyota, we want to build more than just great cars and trucks,” said Michael Rouse, vice president, Philanthropy and Community Affairs, Toyota Motor Sales. “We want to help build great places to live. We hope … that our donation of all-weather boots and socks will help to enrich lives … one step at a time.”
