Emergency Shelter Program receives new Toyota Sienna
Submitted By Emergency Shelter Program
The Hayward-based Emergency Shelter Program, which provides shelter and supportive services to women and children who are survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and homelessness, received a brand new Toyota Sienna from AutoWest Toyota in Hayward through Toyota's Cars for Good program. "100 Cars for Good" is a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days. Emergency Shelter Program was selected as a winner based on votes from the public on the "100 Cars for Good" Facebook page.
This vehicle will be used to transport women and children in need of emergency housing, to and from medical and social service appointments, and transportations to legal proceedings among numerous other purposes.
"Everyone at ESP is thrilled to have been selected as a winner for the 2012 '100 Cars for Good' program," said Vera R. Ciammetti, Executive Director. "We're grateful for this incredible opportunity to better serve the clients who come to us for shelter and support." Attending the ceremony was Joey Kohistani, general Manager of Haywards dealership and Tracy Kaiser, District Manager of Toyota.
