Toyota is donating a Tundra 2010 to Safety Day

The U.S. arm of Toyota - Japanese automaker announced recently it donated a Tundra 2010 to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation's program Safety Day, for being used by charitable foundation, transporting the staff, supplying to safety training farm events, shows and other safety education farm programs. Tundra will be replacing the existing van Chevrolet Astro, donated by Pioneer Hi-Bred back in 2001.

Bernard Geschke - Papillion, Nebraska's program specialist affirmed 'The van served us well, but it was worn out. The Tundra is a wonderful replacement, and with the long box and bed cover, we actually can haul more, larger props and displays than we could with the van. We no longer will have to rent a vehicle to transport our large displays to events such as the Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days'.

Michael Rouse, the TMS vice president of community and philanthropy affairs stated for the press 'Toyota and Progressive Ag Foundation share a similar philosophy about the importance of educating the entire family about safety awareness. We are privileged to support the expansion of the Progressive Ag Safety Day Programs as they reach more communities than ever before'.

Tundra, next year, will be traveling about 12,000 miles, attending lots of the 385 Safety Day projected events as possible. It's driven by Bernard Geschke.

Geschke said 'The Toyota Tundra is a safe, reliable, first-class vehicle, and we greatly appreciate Toyota generously supporting our program with this practical and much-needed vehicle donation. In addition, Performance Toyota of Omaha, Neb., took delivery of the truck, and the dealership was extremely accommodating in getting the truck ready to go'.
