Toyota Donates Winter Boots To Homeless Chicago Families Through the “Walk In My Boots” ProgramToyota Donates Winter Boots To Homeless Chicago Families Through the “Walk In My Boots” Program

In the midst of another brutal Chicago winter, Toyota Motor Sales USA took time out from the annual Chicago Auto Show to help area homeless families by providing them new insulated winter boots. Through its “Toyota Walk In My Boots” community outreach project, the automotive giant was able to help nearly 100 families living in The Salvation Army Evangeline Booth Lodge.

While many programs offer winter coat giveaways, a person’s feet are often left vulnerable to freezing temperatures and even frostbite. With this donation, many families will be shielded from the cold. In addition, Toyota made a $15,000 donation to The Salvation Army Chicago Metropolitan Division, enabling them to continue to provide support for families in times of crisis.
