CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Deemed as the coldest winter in over 40
years, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, through its "Toyota Walk In My Boots"
community outreach project and Chicago Auto Show activities, is stepping in to
help area low-income families by providing new insulated boots to more than
100 families of The Salvation Army Temple Corps Community Center located in
the Near West Side of Chicago.  Often low-income families do not have adequate
clothing to fight the cold elements of a Chicago winter.  While many programs
offer winter coat giveaways, a person's feet are often left vulnerable to
freezing temperatures and even frostbite.  With this donation, many families
will be shielded from the cold.  In addition, Toyota plans to give a $15,000
donation to The Salvation Army Chicago Metropolitan Division enabling them to
continue to provide support for families in times of crisis.

The Chicago Temple Corps is The Salvation Army's oldest continuous ministry in
Chicago since 1886.  The Salvation Army Temple Corps Community Center,
servicing the Near West Side, where 48% of the residents make less than
$15,000 a year and unemployment is hovering around 40%, provides Social
Services and Emergency Assistance (utility and rent assistance; food
certificates; car fare for variable appointments; and funds for emergency
lodging), as well as a Food Pantry.  The center also provides tutoring for
high school students, youth character building and leadership development
programs.  A monthly Community Legal Service Clinic and year-round Pastoral
Counseling are also provided.
