”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: http://www.unitedcyclingfoundation.org
