RV DEALERSHIPS PLEDGE TO RAISE $500,000 TO SUPPORT RELIEF EFFORTS IN NORTHERN ALBERTA
13 DEALERSHIPS, 4 WEEKS, 1 GOAL: $500,000
CBJ — As wildfires begin to get contained in the Fort McMurray region of Northern Alberta, 13 RV dealers across Canada – The Adventurer Group – have banded together to aid the 100,000 displaced residents, their community and the relief efforts of Canadian Red Cross, Samaritan’s Purse Canada and registered local community groups helping to rebuild the region.
These RV companies in The Adventurer Group – Country RV (B.C.), Four Seasons RV Rentals (Alta.), Fraserway RV (Alta., B.C, N.S., Ont. and Y.T.), Roadmaster RV (Alta.) and Travelhome RV (B.C.) – have committed to:
- Donate $1,000 from every RV sold in Alberta
- Donate 10% of retail parts sold in Alberta
- Donate 10% of retail rental bookings made during the four-week period from our Airdrie and Edmonton rental depots
- Donate $500 from every RV sold at any of our nine dealerships outside of Alberta
- Offer a $500 credit on an Adventurer Group Cash Card for Fort McMurray residents purchasing an RV
- Match donations dollar-for-dollar by 700 employees within The Adventurer Group
“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all of the victims of the fires,” said campaign spokesman James Epp, owner of the Adventurer Group. “I want to thank and acknowledge the teams at all 13 participating dealerships for their contributions to these trusted organizations. Samaritan’s Purse Canada, Canadian Red Cross and other registered community organizations are maintaining a strong presence in the effected areas. They must meet our standards prior to us releasing and allocating the funds. This will help us ensure that the funds will efficiently and effectively make a tangible difference in these tragic circumstances.”
The four Alberta dealers – Fraserway RV Calgary, Fraserway RV Lacombe, Fraserway RV Edmonton and Roadmaster RV in Leduc – have partnered with Canadian Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse Canada in the past, raising $291,630 in relief funds toward the 2013 Calgary flood relief efforts. Fraserway RV Abbotsford also supplied three motorhomes to Samaritan’s Purse Canada as command centres to coordinate relief efforts following the 2012 wildfires in Slave Lake, B.C.
