Toyota South Atlanta, together with those who purchased new cars from the dealership during May, met its goal of $10,000 to help make a difference in its community.

The family-owned local business located in Morrow, GA donated $50 for every car sold. “We wanted to make a difference during this challenging time”, says Vice President and General Manager Rich Mahon. 

“We understand how the COVID-19 virus will affect students returning to school in August for the 2020/2021 school year, which is why we are proud to donate $10,000 to the Clayton County Public School Foundation”, he adds.

Clayton County Public Schools Foundation, Inc.’s mission is to provide financial resources to enrich and enhance the educational experience of students, families, teachers, and graduates while remaining committed to supporting a world-class standard of excellence.

“We are grateful for this generous donation. Funds will go towards feeding families and providing hotspots for students who cannot afford an internet connection”, says Superintendent of Clayton County Public Schools, Dr. Morcease Beasley.

With Toyota South Atlanta’s generous donation of $10,000 the foundation can further support students, educators, and community stakeholders with a mechanism for system-wide support and resources. The donation will also help to provide a gateway for the receipt and distribution of resources to Clayton County Public School students, families and alumni.
