Community Involvement at Green Toyota in Springfield, IL



On September 19, 2015 the Clemence Family, of Chatham, were the recipients of a new 2015 Toyota Sienna van- delivered by Green Toyota- along with a $1,000 check, a new car seat and other items for the family!  The van was donated by chivecharities.org.

 

Lizzy (6) and Mason (4) Clemence have a rare genetic disorder called Ligase IV Deficiency.  Ligase IV affects the immune system and both children have undergone bone marrow transplants.  Ligase IV is a very complex disorder.  There have only been 16 known cases worldwide.

While Lizzy has responded well to treatment, Mason has had many complications post-transplant.  The family travels frequently to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for doctors appointments.

Even with medical insurance through Jeff Clemence workplace, the family has acquired a massive amount of medical debt.  Not counting what they will acquire in the future.

If you would like to help this deserving family- you can donate on their GoFundMe page below.

Green Toyota teamed up with former resident and current 
NBA All-Star Andre Iguodala to help youths in Springfield 
find hard-to-find shoes!


Andre's foundation, AIYF, is being administered by his mother Linda Shanklin.  With Andre's recent NBA contract and recent trade to the Golden State Warriors, he has received a number of new, unused "A I" special collection shoes.  Having gone through the challenges of finding large shoes as a youth, Andre and his foundation are sensitive to those with the same issues today.  As a result, he is donating these shoes back to his home town.

Gus Macker- Springfield

GMAC Springfield is working hard to bring the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Tournament back to Springfield. But they need to raise thousands of dollars to get this done.

Green Toyota has joined the cause and donated a 2014 Toyota Corolla to raffle off to help raise funds to pay for the tournament. But organizers say they need more than money to accomplish their goal.

"It takes approximately 200 volunteers to put something like this on," promotions media chair Doris Williams said. "You have to have volunteers to actually set up all the baskets when they come to town. You have to have the volunteers to break down all those baskets."

Tickets for the raffle cost $100 each, and only 500 tickets will be sold. The drawing for the car is January 31. The 2014 Gus Macker Tournament is tentatively scheduled for June 14-15 in Springfield.
