Sunshine Foundations Tire Take Back Days
Hotch’s Auto Parts is proud to participate in the third annual tire collection event supported by Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) to raise money for the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. An organization that helps dreams come true for children who are challenged by severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. The success of the event depends on community involvement and we are calling on you to participate with your presence at our location and asking that you help build the excitement leading up to the event.
Last year, the collection events helped to raise over $123,000 dollars to support the Sunshine Foundation! It will take recycling approximately 3,730 used tires to make just one dream possible. How many dreams can we secure from this year’s donations? We’ll soon find out! Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS), as part of the 2012 Tire Take Back event, is offering a Community Prize to create excitement about this important recycling event, encouraging community participation and underscoring the connection between high value, green products and responsible tire disposal. The Community Prize is a gift in kind of up to $15,000 worth of tire-derived products (such as, but not limited to, recycled rubber mulch, playground surfacing, patio tiles, and sidewalk pavers) from OTS registered Recycled Product Manufacturers (RPMs). The OARA member that collects the most used tires from residents in their area during the event period (May 28-June 2) will be able to designate a local, non-profit community project to receive this gift in kind.
