While Toyota's relocation to Plano is sure to be profitable for local governments, real estate and business, the company also plans to have a big presence in North Texas' philanthropic scene.
The Japanese car maker commemorated its North American relocation from Torrance, California, to Plano with its Hello Texas event on Monday. During the kickoff, Toyota announced a $1 million donation to Plano ISD Academy High School, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and math education.
As we get closer to approaching the relocation to our new headquarters facilities, Toyota and our relocation service providers will be hosting information sessions covering the most asked about relocation topics for all associates and their spouse/domestic partner.
Some associates have expressed concerns about the current situation with the Ebola virus. Maintaining the health and safety of our associates is always a priority for Toyota. We have contingency plans in place to address the spread of contagious diseases, including those with higher transmission rates than Ebola. We are also in the process of partnering with local, state and national officials for guidance on how best to advise associates should the current situation escalate. In the meantime, we are continuing to closely monitor developments. For authoritative and frequently updated information, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
