Progressive Agriculture Foundation (PAF) is one of 250 finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, which is awarding vehicles to 100 nonprofit organizations this fall based on votes from the public via Facebook. PAF’s voting day is Oct. 23.
Since 1995, PAF has touched the lives of more than 1.1 million children and adults by delivering farm and ranch safety training through the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program. Across the U.S. and Canada, Safety Days are coordinated by volunteers to teach children the importance of rural safety and healthy lifestyles. A Toyota Tundra would help the PAF staff deliver training materials and equipment, visit Safety Day volunteers and meet with potential sponsors – all essential to the success of Safety Days.
PAF Chief Administrative Officer Randy Bernhardt explains, “Our job is to keep kids safe and protect the next generation in agriculture. A new Toyota would help us decrease vehicle rental expenses, and increase the number of children we reach with safety training. Every $13 we raise (or save) allows another child to attend a Safety Day. The more funds we have available, the more Safety Days we can host.”
Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program is showcasing five nonprofit organizations each day for 50 days at https://apps.facebook.com/carsforgood/. Each day, visitors to the page can vote for two of the five organizations they feel are most deserving of new Toyota vehicles.
“Progressive Agriculture Foundation will be one of the five organizations highlighted for voting on October 23,” Bernhardt adds. “Please vote to support us in our quest for a new Toyota Tundra.”
