NA Car, Truck Of The Year Awards $40k To Charity

The College for Creative Studies and Feeding America will each receive $20,000.

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards (NACTOY) announced today that it has awarded $40,000 in scholarships and charitable donations to the College for Creative Studies (CCS) and Feeding America.

The charitable donations were made through a partnership between NACTOY and the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). NACTOY jurors selected the recipients of these awards through a voting process that began with a list of respected charities and college scholarships and was narrowed down to the two recipients. 

“On behalf of the 50 members of the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Award journalist jury, I want to sincerely thank NAIAS for its contribution of $20,000 toward these donations,” said NACTOY president Gary Witzenburg. “Our organization is proud to be able to match that donation as we provide the first charitable donations in the history of our organization.”

CCS and Feeding America will each receive a total of $20,000 from NACTOY and NAIAS.

The College for Creative Studies has created NACTOY Automotive Design Scholarships that will award $10,000 scholarships to two students over a two-year period. The recipients will be selected by the Transportation Design Department Chair, Paul Snyder.

Feeding America is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. It provides meals to more than 40 million people each year through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs.
