Prescott, Arizona, is Everybody’s Hometown and because of this, the community is always growing. With growth comes need, and one of the needs that Findlay Toyota of Prescott tries to meet is the need for education.
Through community events and fundraisers such as Stuff the Bus, the annual Quad-City High School Car Raffle, Findlay Toyota of Prescott Education Endowment Fund and with donations to the BASIS Prescott Teachers Fund, we strive to enrich the lives of students in our communities.
The Quad-City High School Car Raffle has generated funds for clubs at Prescott High School, Bradshaw Mountain High School, Chino Valley High School and Mayer High School for several years. It provides the students with the ability to raise funds for the sports and clubs they are invested in. One lucky winner also gets a new Toyota, so it is truly a win-win.
Every back-to-school season, the staff at Findlay Toyota of Prescott fills backpacks and literally stuffs a bus filled with school supplies for the Prescott Unified School District. The community easily matches our generosity with their support by dropping off school supplies at our store for pick up. We wouldn’t be able to have an impact if it wasn’t for the community backing us up along the way.
Each February we put $100 into the Findlay Toyota of Prescott Education Endowment Fund for every vehicle sold. From this fund we help Yavapai County schools with scholarships, supplies and other needs. It is just another way we get to say thank you for all the hard work that students, teachers and their families do to help our community grow.
One of our newer fundraisers is to give back to the teachers within our community. This past winter we donated to the BASIS Prescott Teachers Fund. We find it very important to help those who give so much to our children and our future.
We cannot say thank you enough for how generous you all have been in our first year in Prescott, Arizona. Thank you so much for letting us become a part of this wonderful community.
