The ARPAC Foundation announces the launch of its national Car for Life program. The aim of the project is to collect old vehicles from the public and donate their value to health-related charities to fund research and contribute to public well-being.
Since its creation in 1995, ARPAC Foundation helps people in difficult circumstances by supporting charity organizations active in health care as well as humanitarian and educational projects. It is now concentrating on health care through its Car for Life program. "Personal well-being has always been an important concern for our foundation," notes Pierre Robitaille, ARPAC's Chairman of the Board of directors. "We aim to boost our involvement in the sector to make a real difference in an area that affects us all."
The Car for Life program is very simple: Owners of old vehicles who wish to get rid of them can go to www.carforlife.ca or call the toll free number Depending on the vehicle's condition, the owner can either take it or have it towed to the nearest ARPAC recycler. "The foundation will donate an amount corresponding to the car's age to a partner organization of the participant's choice," explains Mr. Robitaille. "Donations vary between $150 for vehicles dating back to 2000 or earlier and $500 for vehicles built in 2005 or later," adds the Chairman.
