Toyota Gives $324,000 to Fremont Organizations
The money was given to Abode Services, the Fremont Education Foundation, the Fremont Family Resource Center, the Ohlone College and Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments as a sort of recognition for the efforts they've made in their respective fields of activity.
“Nonprofit organizations often provide the community with services that government agencies and corporations can’t offer on their own. It is important for us to recognize the great value that these and other nonprofits bring to our community,” said Bob Wasserman, mayor of Fremont, “We commend these five organizations for their relentless support of the people of Fremont.”
Toyota paired the donations to the launch of a new program called Wonderopolis Family Challenge: Fremont Edition. The program is to make families recognize the importance of education and learning together, with a series of online and offline activities meant to relay the message.
The program will be fun to be part of too, as it will include family field trips, scavenger hunts and online games.
“Toyota is very proud to support the critical work of these organizations in the Bay Area,” said Patricia Salas Pineda, vice president of philanthropy at Toyota Motor North America “Our commitment to education makes us equally excited about launching Wonderopolis in Fremont. As we celebrate our 20th year in partnership with NCFL, we know that their model of families learning together will be a success in the Fremont community."
