‘‘A car for Life’’



The ARPAC Foundation (Association des recycleurs de pièces d’autos et de camions) is proud to count ‘’The  Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence’’ (VSPCR) among its ‘’A car for Life’’ Program partners.  This new program aims to collect among the population, the vehicles at the end of their life and then donate their value to an organization of their choice.


By contributing to this project, the VSPCR gives itself additional means to raise funds.  ‘’A car for Life’’ represents an opportunity for us to increase our financial efforts and assures us to continue our mission which is to offer specialized palliative care free of charge to people of all ages (children, teenagers, adults) affected by a terminally ill disease, all with respect and dignity.  The VSPCR is here to offer support and comfort to persons at the end of their life and this in the 23 municipalities of the MRC and surrounding areas.


The program setup is very simple:  the owner of a vehicle wishing to get rid of it can subscribe directly via the ARPAC Foundation’s website www.autopourlavie.com  or contact someone from the Foundation at 1-855-283-2722.  Depending on the state of the vehicle, the participant can either bring it to the nearest participating recycler or have the vehicle towed.  Finally, depending on the year of the vehicle offered, the ARPAC Foundation will forward a cheque to the program organization partner of the participants choice and then the participant will receive an income tax receipt from this organization.  The donations range from $125 for vehicles dating back to 2000 and less, and $500 and more for vehicles of 2005 and less.  The Foundation’s wish with this campaign is to recover the greatest number of vehicles and to benefit the community.


‘’ARPAC’’,  l’Association des recycleurs de pièces d’autos et de camions is an association of 88 recyclers throughout the province of Quebec which distinguishes itself by the fact that it manages a professional activity following the highest quality service standards and the distribution of recycled parts under warranty.  The members of ARPAC are businesses well known for the respect of a severe code of ethics and the application of responsible business practices. In closing, the ARPAC corroborates with the police forces to eliminate the theft and receiving of stolen vehicle parts.
