Boys & Girls Clubs of the Foothills has received a $12,857 donation from Toyota Financial Services (TFS), in partnership with four auto remarketing firms, ADESA, Manheim, DAA Northwest, and Norwalk Auto Auctions. This is part of a larger contribution of $500,000 from TFS to Boys & Girls Clubs of America that will be divided equally among 35 clubs across the country running the Diplomas to Degrees (D2D) college readiness program.

Launched in 2012, D2D provides tools, resources, and training for thousands of teens to help transition from high school to college.

“Our partnership with Toyota allows us to continue combatting the high school dropout crisis and prepare our teens for successful futures in college,” said Executive Director, John Wilson. He added that Toyota employees also volunteer as mentors and help with fundraising.
