Lafayette LA Community Involvement

2021 -2022 Acadiana High Basketball

Hampton Toyota chose to support the men's and women's Acadiana High Wrecking Rams basketball teams for the 2021 to 2022 school year. Often the majority of support and awareness goes to football teams, so supporting basketball was a way we felt we could make more of an impact. For many people, sports is a way, sometimes the only way, a student feels like they have a place to belong, or a place to shine and excel. For them it's the activity they can use as a social tool to interact, or even as a coping mechanism to help balance out the struggles from other parts of life. Hampton Toyota encourages you to pick a cause, a team, an activity, sports, science, or art, and help make sure it's there to enjoy and participate in for others who may not have had the opportunity. 
2022 Mountain Cajun Getaway

Mountain Cajun Getaway is a non-profit that was founded by a Delcambre, Louisiana native, and is located in West Virginia. Their mission is to aid veterans who are local to Lafayette, Louisiana and surrounding areas a way to reconnect with their most important, after the strain of combat, war, or deployment. They do it by providing all transportation, lodging, and family building activities for veterans and their families from our area who are struggling to reconnect, all paid for by donations. If you know a family that is struggling to rebuild itself after a veteran's return, perhaps they can help. If you would like to donate, contact them directly at
2021 ULL Ragin Cajuns
Hampton Toyota is a proud supporter of the ULL Ragin Cajuns through the ULL Car Dealer Program. We've provided complimentary vehicles for 2 of the Ragin Cajun coaches, on an ongoing basis. This program is of course a huge cost to us, but we believe the benefits if provides to the university are even greater. This program allows the coaches and ULL to have 1 less thing and 1 less expense to worry about and that in turns allows them to focus more on student's professional and personal development, and of course, on winning games which as a whole provides ULL with greater exposure.
