Help Amazement Square win a car from Toyota — Vote June 5

A children’s museum just a few miles from Randolph College could win a new car with the help of the College and Lynchburg community—and you can help no matter where you live.

Amazement Square is participating in Toyota’s “100 Cars for Good” contest. On June 5, the Lynchburg nonprofit will go up against four other groups, and whichever group garners the most votes will receive a Toyota Sienna. Amazement Square would use that vehicle to travel to its outreach programs throughout Virginia. Currently, museum staff use a 16-year-old vehicle that is unreliable for long distances.

To help Amazement Square win the car, you can sign up for a reminder to vote on June 5 using the “100 Cars for Good” app. Also, you can share this blog entry with Facebook or Twitter to tell your friends about it.

Amazement Square has many ties to the College. Students and graduates have had internships and jobs there, and Randolph President John E. Klein serves on the museum’s board of directors. Last year, a group of students helped Amazement Square assemble pieces for a giant mosaic depicting the history of Lynchburg. Randolph’s education department plans further involvement with the museum.
