Toyota has announced that it is donating $1 million to the Red Cross, for the benefit of Hurricane Sandy victims, many of which are still living without power days after the storm. 

The company will also match employees contributions to the Red Cross, or other non-profit organizations that are helping out with Hurricane relief. “On behalf of Toyota, we express our sincere condolences to the families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Since we have operations and many dealerships in the affected regions, we felt a special responsibility to lend a hand,” said CEO of Toyota North America Shigeki Terashi.

If the Hurricane affected customers ability to pay for a lease, or keep up to date on car payments, Toyota and Lexus will also help out by offering lease payment extensions, redirecting billing statements, and by arranging phone or internet payment. Anyone who is looking to purchase a new vehicle in the affected States will get a helping hand in the form of a 90 day deferred first payment program.
