CarHub's Charity Donations
The CarHub community knows that every year we make sure to give back in the holiday season. This year, the team sat down and discussed what we could do to make sure that our donation would have the biggest impact possible in what has been a very abnormal year.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected each and every one of us and no one has been immune to the stress that it has caused. That’s why this year, we want to give our holiday charity allotment to an organization that is dedicated to providing resources for mental health advocacy and services. That’s why we decided to give the entirety of our holiday donation amount to a great service that does so much for people in need, Distress Centres of Greater Toronto.
CarHub Cares. Our holiday charity is just one way that we show it.
To give our community a better sense of what Distress Centres of Greater Toronto does and how they make an impact, we sat down with their Executive Director, Robert Ridge for an interview. You can read the transcript of that interview on our blog here.
