They offer tutoring, counseling, transportation, and mentoring services. In addition, they currently have a housing facility in Central Florida that around 15 local foster youth call home! IMPOWER is an incredible organization – help us help them get these kids the tools they need for the 2013 school year!

Just swing by Toyota of Orlando (off I-4 near the Millenia Mall) or Toyota of Clermont (just west of the Florida Turnpike on State Road 50) and leave your donations in the special barrels at the front of the dealership.

Help us make a difference for local foster youth! 

This isn’t the first time we’ve teamed up with IMPOWER to make a difference in our community – in fact, we’ve worked with them on several occasions! We handed over the keys to a new Toyota Sienna last year when they won the Toyota 100 Cars for Good giveaway, and we also hosted a 2012 holiday gift drive to help these foster youth celebrate Christmas. We love being able to team up with IMPOWER and give back to the community – we couldn’t ask for a better partner! 

If you’d like to contribute to the Back to School Supplies Drive, we’d greatly appreciate it! As we said, you can drop your donations at Toyota of Orlando (888-725-3520) OR Toyota of Clermont (888-590-6090) – whichever is more convenient to you. If you have questions, give us a call! Help us ensure that these foster youth have everything they need to get those A’s this year – we’ll see you soon!
