Toyota recently announced $750,000 in donations to assist with immediate needs and long-term recovery efforts following catastrophic flooding in Eastern Kentucky. Toyota employees are also rallying to support immediate needs through donation drives.  

The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky – Flood Relief Fund will receive $500,000 to help support families throughout eastern Kentucky struggling for access to shelter, food, water and other basic needs.

SBP, Toyota's longstanding disaster resilience, response and recovery partner, will receive $250,000 to help guide survivors as they navigate the federal funding application and appeals processes, share on-line recovery tools and work with high-risk communities on how to mitigate and prepare for future disasters. 

"When disasters like this occur, it's important that we do everything possible to help ensure Kentuckians have the support and resources needed to recover and rebuild," said Tellis Bethel, group vice president, chief social innovation officer, Toyota Motor North America. "Our hearts go out to all of those impacted."
