San Francisco Toyota supports automaker’s pledge to give back to those who have served our country
After last year’s successful inaugural contest, Toyota Motor Sales USA and Vantage Mobility International (VMI) haveannouncedthe second annual Star Spangled Salute contest, a part of VMI’s Operation Independence program. The contest is open to all disabled U.S. veterans and gives entrants the chance to win a brand-new Toyota Sienna with VMI’s access 360 In-Floor Ramp Conversion system.
Entries can be submitted between now and Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014. The winner will be randomly drawn on Veterans Day.
In 2013, Toyota and VMI teamed up for the first Star Spangled Salute contest, and more than 850 veterans entered. The winner was Cpl. Charlie Harvey, a retired U.S. Army veteran who served during the Vietnam War.
“Words cannot express how grateful Charlie and I are to Toyota and VMI for giving us the chance to win this van through the Star Spangled Salute contest,” said Harvey’s wife, Linda. “The Sienna with VMI’s ramp has changed Charlie’s life in so many ways we didn’t think were possible. We can go everywhere together again, like the mall, grocery store and out to eat for dinner.”
Developed by VMI and the VMI Select Dealer Independence, Operation Independence helps to educate veterans about Federal Vehicle Grants, which are available to disabled U.S. veterans. To enter the Operation Independence Star Spangled Banner contest and to find out about the rules, click here.
