Danville Toyota stays involved in the surrounding community and is a part of many local events. We feel that giving back is one of the best things our dealership can do. We have such loyal customers and love being able to interact with them outside of the dealership as well.
Danville Toyota is proud to be involved with God's Pit Crew. During the recent South Carolina floods, the organization was running short on supplied, after already driving countless loads of water, Gatorade, and other items to the victims, which totaled over a half million pounds! We wanted to be able to help those in need over in South Carolina, as well as right here in our community of Danville. In two days, we were able to collect an amazing 40,000 pounds of bottled water, as well as present God's Pit Crew with a check of $10,000 from Danville Toyota and $10,000 from Toyota! We couldn't be more proud of our community for stepping up to help this great organization out, and those who are going through hard times right now.
