Girl Scouts Traversing Kentucky's Wilderness Road in a New Toyota Tundra!

Congratulations to Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road for winning a new Toyota Tundra from Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good national social media campaign. Toyota selected 500 organizations to compete for a car or truck. Each organization creates a profile and 2-minute video for the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page. Each day Facebook fans go to the 100 Cars for Good page and vote for the organization that they want to win the car. Toyota gives away one car each day for 100 days.

Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road serves more than 17,000 girls in kindergarten through high school in urban and rural communities in central, northern and eastern Kentucky, including 45 counties in the Appalachian region of the state. Kentucky’s Wilderness Road takes pride in providing recreational and educational facilities in which Girl Scouting may flourish. Girls enjoy exciting adventure programs like camping, the climbing tower and zip line, backpacking, sailing and caving. In 2011, 3,337 girls and adults visited one of the four camps. The Toyota Tundra will replace the Council’s current camp vehicle, an 11-year-old truck with 172,000 miles that is too small to meet the needs of maintaining the Council’s four camp properties across the state.

“We want to thank our sister Girl Scouts across the country who voted for Kentucky’s Wilderness Road,” said Susan Hansell, CEO. “A Toyota Tundra will help us provide safe and inviting camp facilities for our girls and volunteers as we strive to provide excellent outdoor and adventure experiences that provide physical, emotional and social benefits to girls.”
