SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- A local non-profit organization gets some new wheels after winning a national competition.
The Albany Damien Center competed against four other nonprofit finalists in an online contest by Toyota called 100 Cars for Good. The center won a brand new Toyota Sienna minivan.
Lia Toyota of Colonie handed over the keys Tuesday to the executive director of the center who said the vehicle will serve many different purposes.
Executive Director Perry Junjulas said, "It is going to be incredible to have a dependable vehicle to help people living with AIDS in the community and Capital Region, to help them get to their doctor appointment, pick up pet food for our paws program, to also have our meals delivered from the regional food bank."

The center's former van was more than 20 years old.
