You probably know by now that at Toyota of Orlando, we’re dedicated to the community here in Central Florida! We regularly work with a foster youth organization called IMPOWER – in fact, we’re hosting a Back to School Supplies Drive for local foster youth through August 15th, and you can drop your contributions at our dealership OR our new sister store, Toyota of Clermont! However, we’re not only working with IMPOWER to give back to the community – we also sponsor a local OPD softball team that plays in various charity tournaments around the state. Meet Team Toyota of Orlando!
Team Toyota of Orlando plays in tournaments to benefit those in need
Our new Toyota dealership got a chance to chat with Pablo Quinones (who plays center field, shortstop, and second base) yesterday, and he gave us the scoop on Team Toyota of Orlando. This local softball team is composed of sworn members of the Orlando Police Department, and Deputy Chief Robert Pigman is the captain. We’ve sponsored the team for five years running, and we love the fact that they play in charity tournaments that benefit those in need. Not only that, they win! The team plays in state and city tournaments, and has won state titles more than once. Additionally, they play in the Police Olympics and have placed with silver and bronze medals three years in a row!
Like we said, the team is made up of sworn OPD officers who donate their spare time to practice and play to benefit those who need it most. They often play in tournaments that benefit fallen officers and their families, donating the proceeds to them. Most recently, they played in a tournament that collected proceeds for disadvantaged youth in Central Florida! Quinones noted that the whole team was incredibly grateful to have our dealership on their side – without our sponsorship, it would be difficult for them to travel to the various charitable tournaments that they participate in. We’re happy to help, and we’re proud to sponsor officers who give up their spare time to help those in need in addition to serving our city every day!
Help Toyota of Orlando help the local community in Central Florida!
If you want to learn more about how you can help us help the community in Central Florida, head over to our website! As noted, we’re hosting a Back to School Supplies Drive right now to collect school supplies for local foster youth who need them for the upcoming school year. Without these supplies, the kids will have a difficult time obtaining academic success, so it’s incredibly important for everyone to pitch in! We have collection points at both members of our family of dealerships, and we greatly appreciate any contributions – no matter how small, they make a huge difference!
Toyota of Orlando is located at 3575 Vineland Road – we’re just off I-4 near the Millenia Mall. You can drop your contributions with us, and give us a call at (888) 725-3520 if you have any questions! We’re open until 10pm seven days a week, so come on down whenever you have time – we’ll see you soon, and we appreciate all of your help with this amazing cause!
