Marina del Rey Toyota Donates $5,000 to Venice High

The check will support the high school's basketball team.

Marina del Rey Toyota presented a $5,000 check to the Venice High School’s girls basketball team.

Coach Dominick Flores accepted the donation on Jan. 25 that Marina del Rey Toyota has been making for the last eight years. 

"It means so much to us that Marina del Rey Toyota has been able to support our Girls Basketball Team for the past eight years. Their donations have helped to offset the cost of uniforms and travel expenses to away games as well as to purchase equipment,” Flores said in a statement. “Without their support, we'd be scrambling to find the funds to cover these costs. Marina del Rey Toyota is a true friend to us, and Venice High School." 

The donation was part of a nationwide Toyota effort to support community programs.

"As you continue to hear about more and more cut backs that are taking place with our schools, we at Marina Del Rey Toyota wanted to help our local schools with the most charitable donation possible,” Kevin Ray, general manager of Marina del Rey Toyota said in a statement. “I think it's important to keep such activities in the schools. I truly find it a privilege to be able to help support such programs.”
