BALTIMORE - PRNewswire/ -- As temperatures

fluctuate this winter across the country, one thing for sure is snowy, icy and even cold rainy days are here through March and warm winter boots and socks are still a “must have” in Baltimore. To protect families from the cold and rain, on Saturday, February 4, 2017, Toyota Motor North America through its “Toyota Walk In My Boots”community outreach project held in conjunction with the Motor Trend International Auto Show-Baltimore activities, stepped in to help Baltimore families by providing new insulated boots and socks to more than 200 participants of The Salvation Army (TSA) Booth House Shelter, a homeless shelter for women, men and families with children; and TSA Boys and Girls Club’s of Franklin Square and Middle River.

“With the need greater than ever because of the often cold winter days, we are blessed to have support from good corporate citizens like Toyota, who are ‘Doing the Most Good’

by raising awareness of our mission to feed, shelter and clothe those who are less fortunate,” said Major Gene A. Hogg, area commander, The Salvation Army of Central Maryland.

Toyota also donated $15,000 to The Salvation Army of Central Marylandenabling them to continue to provide refuge

for children and families in times of crisis. They also treated the families to a “Thanksgiving-style” buffet luncheon catered

by JD’s Catering. Baltimore Native MESHELLE, the Indie- Mom of Comedy, gave the families some encouraging words as she grew up in Baltimore and understands the many struggles

that families are facing right now.
