ANDREW TOYOTA AWARDS THE WISCONSIN HUMANE SOCIETY WITH $2,500 DONATION
Andrew Toyota presented a $2,500 donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS), which also received a matching donation from Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
The Wisconsin Humane Society has been saving the lives of animals in need for 140 years. They operate animal shelters in five counties, as well as a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. The donation will help their 2020 initiatives within the Milwaukee area.
Andrew Toyota has been a pet-friendly Southeastern Wisconsin dealership for many years. You can often see several client’s pets in their showroom. Recognizing the Wisconsin Humane Society, Andrew Toyota wanted to further support their dealership’s love of Milwaukee area animals.
“We are proud to support the efforts of the Wisconsin Humane Society,” stated Andrew Schlesinger, Dealer Principle of Andrew Automotive. “They truly make a difference with our 4-legged friends in Southeastern Wisconsin. As they do not receive general government funding and are not part of any national umbrella group, the local nonprofit depends on the generosity of the community to annually serve 40,000 animals and their families. Contributions such as ours are crucial to their success in our community.”
The Toyota Dealer Match Program enables dealer contributions to make a greater impact on the community. Since 1991, Toyota has contributed nearly $800 million to non-profit organizations and has always been guided by a strong belief in serving the communities where it does business.
