Serra Toyota Community Involvement
Serra Toyota in Birmingham, Alabama isn’t just a dealership, it is a part of the community. It helps provide vehicles for local drivers, but it is more than just a place that sells cars. We work hard to be a respected and helpful addition to the city. Our various dealerships work together to help the community through donations and event participation. Without Serra Toyota's community involvement, we would be just another dealership trying to make money without caring for the community that supports them. We have a very strong and successful relationship with the Birmingham community.
Three Hots and a Cot
One major event that Serra Toyota helped with was the Three Hots & A Cot event. “Three Hots and a Cot” is a military term that refers to three meals and a bed. Three Hots and a Cot is an organization in Birmingham that provides services for homeless veterans. This organization is not a homeless shelter, but a gateway to independence. They house 30 men and women each night and provide over 1,200 trips to the VA hospital, over 10,000 nights for shelter and 29,565 meals for the veterans. Serra Toyota joined the cause in their event in January 2014. They donated a Toyota Sienna that was filled with supplies needed to run the house.
JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)
Serra Toyota is partnered up with JDRF. They will be participating in the Sneaker Campaign and a Facebook Charity Campaign in support of the JDRF walk/gala. The JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complication through the support of research.

Scion tC Giveaway
Another event that Serra Toyota participates in, is a Scion tC giveaway. This event is held to honor the memory of Christina Heichelbech, who was killed in the tornadoes that devastated the Birmingham area in January 2012. She had an exceptional academic record which had earned her a full tuition scholarship Auburn University. Serra Toyota has created this event to be able to award a local senior with academic excellence a new car. This year is the third consecutive year that Serra Toyota has given away a Scion tC to a local high school senior.
