McDonough Toyota Donates Van to Wildlife Center of Virginia

Posted: Updated:

The Wildlife Center of Virginia has a brand-new van to help in its mission of rescuing animals. Tuesday, McDonough Toyota in Staunton presented the wildlife center with a 2014 Toyota Sienna worth $30,000.

Last fall the center competed in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good campaign and was one of the nonprofits selected as winners.

The center’s director, Ed Clark, says the van is ideal for transporting animals used in education programs and exhibits along with moving supplies.

"The animals that come to the wildlife center, 2,800 in a year, require an awful lot of food, an awful lot of supplies, and this will be a wonderful vehicle in which to keep our inventory up,” Clark said.

Toyota gave away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits in 50 days. After an elimination process, the winners were picked by having the most votes on Facebook in one day.
