RICHMOND HILL, ON. (May 26th, 2016.) Volvo Car Canada Ltd. has made a monetary donation in support of the Canadian Red Cross in their relief and recovery efforts with regards to the fires in Fort McMurray and the surrounding areas.
“The crisis in Fort McMurray and the surrounding area has rightfully become a national concern and it has been inspiring to see so many Canadians join in the recovery and support those affected during this difficult time,” said Alexander Lvovich, Managing Director, Volvo Car Canada Ltd. “The Volvo brand is family-centric, and people are at the core of everything we do; it was immediately clear we needed to support the ongoing relief efforts as our nation continues to work towards resolve in Alberta.”
In addition to Volvo Canada making a donation to the relief efforts, the Volvo Wildlife Relief Incentive Program has also been implemented. A $2,500 credit put towards purchasing, leasing or financing any new Volvo car will be valid to any individual that experienced a total loss to their vehicle during the Alberta wildfires.
