Project Open Hand Needs Your Help


Good morning!  Have you ever had an opportunity to make a difference in a person’s life?  Make a true change that impacts many lives?  Or are you just a kind hearted charitable person looking for another way to help?  Either way here’s your chance to do something!  The 100 Cars for Good campaign opens voting for the second year of a national philanthropic program awarding 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 consecutive days.

Here’s how it works, Facebook puts up 5 non-profits each day and asks everyone to vote for the program they like most.  The organization with the most votes at the end of the day will win a new vehicle.  They get to choose from among 6 Toyota models:  Camry Hybrid, Highlander SUV, Prius V Hybrid, Sienna minivan, Sienna Mobility or Tundra full-sized truck.  A 6 year/100,000 mile Platinum warranty will be provided for each vehicle, compliments of TFS.  The 4 runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.  Every vote counts and we have a local organization needing your vote!

TODAY, Project Open Hand in San Francisco will be on the voting block.  It is an organization dedicated to delivering “meals with love” to people who are homebound and critically ill with any serious illness.  The original vision of “nutrition with compassion” is being shared with other people in need, people who have limited social services available to them and are in need of the comfort Project Open Hand’s meals provide.  Here is what one of their client’s said;  “The silver lining of being a two time breast cancer survivor is the awareness of the blessings in my life. For my children and myself, Project Open Hand, with its amazing staff and volunteers, has been one of those great blessings. Thank you, Project Open Hand, for nourishing our bodies and massaging our souls.”— Lori Wong, Client


Get the word out to all of your friends and family members to vote for this worthy organization working in local neighborhoods helping people get meals. I’m sure we all know of someone dealing with an illness who could use a program like Project Open Hand.  Please also remember to vote once a day during working hours throughout the competition to help other non-profit organizations in this campaign. Voting will be open every day from 10:00 am ET/7:00 am PT to 12:00 am ET/9:00 pm PT



Scion FR-S Arrived At San Francisco Toyota

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The all new 2012 Scion Fr-S came to our store today. We got to go on a short test drive, it’s a nice smooth ride for this powerful sport car.

The FR-S’s low weight is matched with a dynamically tuned suspension setup consisting of MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone system in the rear. Lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes are on all four corners.

The fierce exterior of the FR-S is a solid reflection of its inner power. The profile, inspired by the Toyota 2000GT, reveals a hood and roof-line that is remarkably sleek and low, giving it an aerodynamic shape that channels air cleanly over to the top. The low stance continues to exaggerate the coupe’s menacing face, which is made up of sharp lines, a wide mouth and angular headlights. The aggressive front fenders protrude upward and boast the iconic ‘86’ piston emblem, which highlights the car’s AE86 heritage as well as its unique new boxer engine. The rear fascia sits low and wide, with aerodynamic lower treatments that surround the sporty dual exhaust system.  LEDs illuminate the edgy taillights, while center-mounted backup lights finish the muscular design.

The FR-S’s interior features a 2+2 seating configuration that is designed with both form and function in mind. The front seats are mounted extremely low and are comfortable yet assertive, while the rear seat folds down flat, creating flexible space. The large center-mounted tachometer is the focus of the three-gauge cluster, keeping the driver informed of the engine’s vitals. Speed is monitored by both digital and analog gauges.
