21.01.2008/ After two years of signing up “paid fan members” of the Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team, the team was able to donate a portion of the membership proceeds at the end of 2007 to the United Cycling Foundation. The Foundation will donate the money to Chrysalis, an organisation who helps the homeless become self sufficient through job opportunities.

On February 1st 2008,  the United Cycling Foundation, with the support of the Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team, it’s fan members and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc., will donate money to an organization in Southern California, Chrysalis, who helps the homeless become self sufficient through job opportunities. Not only will the Foundation be donating funds, but riders and staff from the Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team will be taking a tour of Skid Row and the Chrysalis facility to learn how the homeless are given job training.  

”The team and its fans are able to “Change Lives” by donating funds to help the homeless learn skills to help them work and become integrated with society” said United Cycling Foundation’s Executive Director, Leslie Tucker.

The United Cycling Foundation chose Chrysalis to help the homeless in areas where the team races. Since many of the team members live in Southern California and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc has its corporate headquarters in Torrance, CA; “We thought it would be appropriate to help the homeless in these locations. This donation to Chyrsalis is a clear cut example of how athletes, their fans, and great corporate sponsors like Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc. can make a positive impact on the communities they live and work in”, said Leslie Tucker.

Donations are still being accepted to help the homeless people and are tax deductible for 2008 at:
