STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- The Wildlife Center of Virginia received a new van Tuesday after winning a contest.
The center picked up the key to its new Toyota Sienna at McDonough Toyota after winning Toyota's "100 Cars for Good" contest, where they competed against four other organizations to try to get the most votes.
The van is stocked with supplies the center can use and has a 100,000 mile warranty.
Ed Clark, the president of The Wildlife Center, excited for the doors the van will help open.
"We've been sort of dreading having to invest in new vehicles, and then along comes the Toyota contest, and here we are. Eagles take up a lot of room. This vehicle will take them with no problem at all. Holds a lot of stuff, it will go anywhere we need to go, and we can do it with real style now," said Ed Clark, the president of the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
Clark said primarily they'll use the van as a way to transport animals for public outreach, such as school visits.
