Health Care Access is in the running to win a new car today, June 3, and the only way they'll do so is if they get enough votes from our community. So, please vote! And spread the word!
The nonprofit health clinic is competing with four other nonprofits in the Toyota "Cars for Good" contest. The organization with the most votes today wins! Voting begins at 5 a.m. Central Time this morning and ends at 10:59:59 Central Time tonight.
Actually, Toyota is donating 100 cars in the contest, which began May 9 and ends August 16. Each day, a different group of five nonprofit organizations competes for a car. Health Care Access was one of two Kansas nonprofits selected to participate in the contest. Last month, His Hands Clothing Closet in Eudora vied for a new car, but, alas, lost to a nonprofit in North Carolina. Let's not let that happen again!
To vote, go to Toyota's Facebook page, and you'll find "Cars for Good", and a link to today's contestants. To vote, you must log into your Facebook account. You have to be at least 13 years old and a U.S. resident. One vote per person. Here's more information about the contest:
You can find out more about Health Care Access on the organization's Facebook page, and on their website. If they win, they plan to use the vehicle to travel throughout Douglas County to do health care screenings for diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer. Here's the YouTube video they did for the contest:
