Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Amarillo citizens participated in the 2012 National Philanthropy Day Luncheon on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at the Amarillo Civic Center. Street Toyota-Scion Owner, Joe Street was the presenter of the awards for the event.
“It was definitely an honor to have been asked to be the emcee of the awards ceremony this year,” Street said. “Especially because I helped present fellow philanthropists to the community and showcase the hard work they have done over the year.”
Street Toyota-Scion is very involved in the community and giving back where they can. Currently Street Toyota-Scion is holding their annual Canned Food Drive and all the items collected will be donated to the Amarillo High Plains Food Bank.
“We are always looking for ways to help out the community,” Street said. “We want to reach as many individuals and organizations as we can in the Panhandle. One of our main ports to reaching many organizations is with the United Way.”
Street Toyota-Scion's philanthropy is United Way. Last year Street Toyota-Scion employees donated over $35,000 to United Way and the dealership donated an additional $10,000. Thirteen employees chose to donate over $1,000 each to United Way last year. Donating $1,000 or more makes the individual a Leader.
“It's a wonderful organization to support because by supporting United Way, we are supporting many great organizations that need help.” Street said.
Street Toyota-Scion employees have many opportunities to volunteer throughout the community this season. For more information on how you can help please contact David Meraz at 806-350-3673.
