The cash donation will benefit the “Boys and Girls Club of Tecate”, while the trucks will be donated to three of Toyota’s local nonprofit partners - the Red Cross in Tijuana, the Fire Brigade in Tijuana and the Children’s Foundation in Tecate.

“The dedication of our Mexico team has contributed to the facility’s manufacturing excellence,” said Osamu Nagata, president of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. “Their efforts strengthen our vision of building great trucks, while contributing to the local community and supporting economic development in the region.”
