Toyota continued its commitment to support Baltimore families in need by donating winter boots and socks through its “Walk in My Boots” community outreach project.

More than 200 youths and their families received new Bogs waterproof insulated boots and Smartwool socks on Jan. 30, designed to protect their feet from harsh weather conditions, Toyota said in a statement announcing the initiative.

“With the pandemic, it’s even more difficult for families who are living from paycheck to paycheck to supply everyday needs as some have been forced to stay home due to lost work or [in order to] care for their children,” said Maj. Roger Glick, area commander of The Salvation Army of Central Maryland. “The Salvation Army of Central Maryland is so grateful to Toyota for all they do and their commitment to Baltimore’s children and families.”

Toyota also donated $15,000 to The Salvation Army of Central Maryland.
