LATHAM, N.Y., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Northway Toyota presented a new
Toyota Tundra pickup truck to the CURE Foundation of Albany today as part of
Toyota's "100 Cars for Good" program. Cars for Good is a major philanthropic
effort from Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. (NYSE: TM)that is awarding new
vehicles to 100 nonprofit organizations over the course of 100 days, based on
votes from the public.

The CURE Foundation aids underprivileged Albany residents of all ages. The
group delivers healthful meals to inner-city children in the parks during the
summer and in their feeding centers throughout the year. CURE visits the
elderly and provides aid to residents struggling to make ends meet.

This is the second year of the 100 Cars for Good program, which kicked off in
May with applicants entering for a chance to win a new Toyota. Applications
were reduced to 500 finalists and certified by an independent panel of
judges. Then the finalists submitted online profiles to encourage friends and
supporters to vote for them on the Toyota USA Facebook page, with five
finalists up for consideration by the public each day.

"The new Tundra will enable us to pick up food from local food banks and
transport it to our feeding centers in the city," said Mark Pratt, Chief
Financial Officer of CURE. "It will also serve as a work truck for projects
and community outreach throughout the year, such as our Farmers Market, which
brings fresh fruit and vegetables to the children."

The winning vehicles come with an extended six-year, 100,000-mile Vehicle
Service Agreement, courtesy of Toyota Financial Services.

"Although Toyota has a history of giving to nonprofit organizations, 100 Cars
for Good was the first Toyota initiative to put the public into the driver's
seat of one of their major philanthropic efforts," said Greg Finin, vice
president of Northway Toyota. "We are proud to be able to present this
vehicle to C.U.R.E. to help them provide a valuable and much-needed service in
the community."

Northway Toyota, located at 727 New Louden Rd., serves customers in Latham,
NY, Albany and surrounding areas.
