2021 Corporate Community Award Recipient

Kelowna Toyota

In 2021, Toyota Kelowna was busy, directly supporting numerous fundraising efforts including initiatives in support of the new Health Sciences Centre at Okanagan College along efforts to support the BC SPCA, Okanagan Food Bank, Starbright and the BC Cancer Foundation. Their support and generosity have helped mental health care, children’s social services and students pursuing health care education.

Kelowna Toyota also partnered with Motionball for Special Olympics making the largest donation in event history. In addition to the monetary donation, Kelowna Toyota also donates a car to be raffled onsite at the event. You can always find their amazing staff involved in their volunteer and community projects and fundraisers. This corporate community really does believe in giving back to their community!
