TORONTO —After severe rainfall and floods suddenly uprooting the lives of many British Columbians this week, Toyota has announced it is donating $115,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to support relief efforts in the affected communities.

Toyota Canada Inc., Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada, Toyota Financial Services, and Canadian Auto Parts Toyota Inc. are making the combined donation to the Canadian Red Cross British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal.

Through the help of volunteers and staff, Canadian Red Cross is providing emergency support services in the form of lodging. It is also providing basic needs such as food and emotional support to people and families who have had to flee their homes in the face of flooding and extreme weather.

“The thoughts of the Toyota family are with the residents of B.C. —including our customers, dealers, employees and communities —as they come together to overcome this disaster,” said Larry Hutchinson, President and CEO of TCI in a statement.

“We feel it’s important to support the ongoing efforts of organizations like Canadian Red Cross as they work to provide shelter, essential resources and other support for the people who’ve been affected by the recent floods.”
