DALLAS, TEXAS (PRWEB) January 03, 2017
CashForCars.com is proud to announce its $12,100 donation to Susan G. Komen as a result of its initiative in the month of October to donate $5 for every car purchase made. After purchasing 1,210 vehicles, the campaign raised a total of $6,050 for donation, and Copart, CashForCars.com’s parent company, volunteered to match the dollar amount the team raised, making their entire donation amount $12,100.
“Breast cancer awareness is a topic that I, and the CashForCars.com team, take very seriously, and I’m glad we’ve been able to do our part to further the cause,” said David Sutkin, Director of CashForCars.com. He continues, “We started this initiative as a tribute to our family members and loved ones who have bravely fought this all too common form of cancer, and we're fortunate that Copart has taken the initiative to support us in our donation.”
This donation is also a testament to CashForCars.com’s willingness to encourage and support employees’ suggestions and innovative ideas. Vehicle Purchasing Agent Rachel Saint-vil originally presented the idea of a charitable donation to management, and it was immediately put into action.
“When we heard this was something that the CashForCars.com team had planned for October, we were on board immediately,” said Will Franklin, Executive Vice President of Copart. He added further, “Copart prides itself in giving back to communities across the U.S., and the donation to Susan G. Komen lets CashForCars.com be a part of our charitable efforts.” Copart locations around the globe helped to raise awareness at their facilities by wearing pink throughout the month of October.
The CashForCars.com team is proud of the success of the campaign and the amount of funds raised through the car purchases. To read more about the charitable donation, please visit the CashForCars.com blog.
