Earlier this month, many of us got a day off of work or school to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Toyota honored Marin Luther King Jr. by donating a total of $50,000 to five Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs).
Bowie State University, Delaware State University, Howard University, Morehouse College, and Morgan State University each received $10,000.
“While at Morehouse, Dr. King observed that ‘Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of life,’” said Mike Groff, Toyota Financial Services (TFS) president and CEO, in a statement. “To help further the principles he so effectively championed, and in keeping with TFS’ deeply held commitment to diversity and inclusion, TFS is honored to support the mission of HBCUs and the dreams they help make possible.”
These donations were part of TFS’s Making Life Easier program, which support education initiatives across the country. TFS has also been strongly committed to diversity and inclusion and has been recognized as a DiversityInc Top 50 company for six consecutive years.
Here at Thousand Oaks Toyota, we are proud to be part of a company that works hard to help those in need.
