The Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio accepted Thursday the delivery of a new hybrid Toyota Prius from the National Urban League.

Donna Jones Baker, President and CEO, received the keys, along with Angela J. Williams, Vice President of Administrative Services, who manages the League’s small automobile fleet.

Then local League is one of 93 affiliates of the National Urban League and received the gift of the car because it is one of the highest-rated, receiving the coveted 5-star designation for several consecutive review periods. The Greater Cincinnati Urban League has served the community since 1949. Miami Valley Urban League was established in 2013, three years after the Dayton Urban League dissolved.

Greater Cincinnati and Miami Valley are subsidiaries of the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio.

Chara Fisher Jackson is executive director of Greater Cincinnati, with headquarters in Avondale.

Branford Brown is executive director of Miami Valley, located on Dayton’s West Side.
