Toronto, Ontario — The Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) Board of Directors have begun to distribute funds from their ARC Covid-19 Relief Fund.
After an initial donation from Car-Part.com of $5,000, ARC matched that donation and Car-Part.com kicked in another $5,000.
From that initial funding, nine cheques of $1,000 each have been issued to ARC Members. Six cheques went to a Direct Member business, and three cheques went to employees of Direct Member business. Regionally, two went to OARA Members, one to an OARA employee, one to an ARPAC Member, two went to an ARPAC employee, and three went to ARAAC Members.
The Fund was established to support Direct Members of ARC, and their vulnerable employees, to help deal with the repercussions of the Covid-19 Pandemic and/or industry shutdowns or slowdowns.
Relief funds are still available and ARC Members are urged to take advantage of this funding for themselves or employees who are in need. They can confidentially contact Steve Fletcher, ARC Managing Director at 519-858-98761 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
