LONDON, ON, Sept. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - CarProof Vehicle History Reports, Canada's most trusted vehicle history report provider, has donated $12,000 to Canadian Red Cross relief efforts in support of the Alberta floods and the Lac-Mégantic explosion in Quebec.
From July 22 to 28, CarProof set aside a portion of all vehicle history report sales to automotive dealers and consumers in Alberta to help that province recover from the extensive flooding that occurred in June. A week later, the company pledged to donate a percentage of Quebec sales from July 30 to Aug. 5 to support the Lac-Mégantic assistance program set-up by the Red Cross after the July 5 train explosion. In total, $6,000 was raised for Alberta and $6,000 was generated for Lac-Mégantic, bringing the overall total to $12,000.
"The entire CarProof team feels deeply for the people affected by both of these horrible disasters. We have employees and customers who suffered as a result of the flooding and the explosion and we felt it was important that we support these communities in their time of need," said Drew Forret, CFO/COO at CarProof. "We'd like to thank our dealer members and our retail customers for helping us make this donation to these relief efforts."
