While we were sad to part company with 14 of our ‘trusty’ service vehicles that have come to the end of their useful commercial life, we are thrilled that we were able to find a partner who could put them to even more valuable use.
LIV North has partnered with Homeless Cars, a charitable foundation in Canada that accepts used vehicles and exclusively donates the proceeds of the sale of the vehicles to local shelters and food banks in the area.
The proceeds from LIV North’s donation will be benefiting Seeds of Hope Foundation and Ve’ahavta, two important organizations that operate in the GTA. Seeds of Hope runs five housing projects, offers cooked meals every day, and programming and therapy. Ve’ahavta is well known for their vans that drive around Toronto providing warm clothing, food and emergency care, as well as job training for people transitioning out of homelessness.
Brian Townsend, Vice President of Operations, shares “We are proud to support Homeless Cars. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disproportionately affect those low income individuals more likely to experience shelter and food insecurity, the need for donations is even more important today.”
