In celebration of its 10-year anniversary of making pickup trucks at its San Antonio manufacturing plant, Toyota has donated 10 trucks to various charities in the San Antonio area. This "10 for 10" program is Toyota's way of giving back to the community where it has spent 10 years. Currently the Texas plant produces midsize Tacomas and full-size Tundras.
It was 2003 when Toyota announced it would build pickups in San Antonio; just 10 years later it celebrated manufacturing its 1 millionth vehicle there — a 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax — where it now makes more than 200,000 pickups each year and employs more than 2,900 workers. The plant cost $2.2 billion to build, and there are 21 suppliers onsite to help with any production or trim changes that may be necessary.
The nonprofits and institutions that received either a Tacoma or Tundra were:
- Christian Senior Services Meals on Wheels
- Floresville Independent School District
- Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio
- Northside Independent School District
- San Antonio College, Challenger Center
- San Antonio Fire Department
- San Antonio River Foundation
- Somerset Independent School District
- Southwest Independent School District
- South San Antonio Independent School District
