Recycle tires to help childrens’ dreams come true

Hotch’s Auto Parts invites Prince Edward County residents to recycle their used tires free of charge in support of making childrens’ dreams come true.

The County helped raise nearly $40,000 last year and Hotch’s Auto Parts in Ameliasburgh is participating again this year in a province-wide ‘Tire Take Back’ campaign to raise money to support The Sunshine Foundation of Canada, a Canadian charity that makes dreams come true for children with severe disabilities and life-threatening illnesses.

In partnership with Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS), Hotch’s Auto Parts will host the Tire Take Back collection event where all tire fees associated with each passenger, light truck and agricultural tire dropped off during business hours will be donated to The Sunshine Foundation.

OTS also will also award a community prize of $15,000 in sustainable, recycled tire products for a local, non-profit community project to the collection site that brings in the most tires.

Over the last four years, the OARA Tire Take Back events have raised more than $500,000, and a successful event last year enabled Sunshine Foundation to send children within its network to Disney World on its DreamLift this June.  fundraiser to help the Sunshine Foundation give children with severe disabilities a dream they will never forget.

Tires accepted from today to June 1 Monday – Friday: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.; and Saturday: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Hotch’s Auto Parts, 22 Crofton Road.
