West Liberty, KY– Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) staff members received on Wednesday, November 7, the Toyota Highlander won by the Morgan County ARH Home Health Agency as one of 100 nonprofit winners in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program. 100 Cars for Good is a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker gave away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days.
