Anne Pleads with Canadian Tire

April 21, 2005 permalink

The girl Anne has found that Canadian Tire is funding Children's Aid, and has written a letter to Canadian Tire requesting them to cease their support.

Persons wishing to help Anne can leave a message for the president of Canadian Tire toll-free at 1-800-387-8803. The email of the department of Canadian Tire responsible for this function is and they have a Canadian Tire Foundation for Families website.

Dr Dolores Sicheri joined Anne with her own letter to Canadian Tire President and Board of Directors.

Here is the webpage of the York Region Children's Aid Society thanking Canadian Tire. In case it changes in response to controversy, we record its content on April 21, 2005 (without the embedded links):



On September 30, 2004, Canadian Tire Associate Dealers from across the Toronto Suburbs presented four vans to the Children's Aid Societies of York, Peel, Durham and Halton Regions through the Canadian Tire Foundation for Families.

The total contribution of the three-year lease for all four vehicles comes to nearly $90,000.

The Society is very fortunate to have such a valuable partnership with Canadian Tire Foundation for Families. The Foundation for Families objective is to help families when they need it most. Throughout recent years the Foundation for Families and York Region CAS have worked closely together to provide our children and families with the help and support they need and deserve.

The van continues to be an invaluable component of day-to-day service delivery. It has been used for a variety of purposes, including the transportation of children to recreational activities such as the CAS annual Camp Chipmunk as well as other essential services. The new van was also quite useful during the holiday season to deliver toys, food and gifts for the 28th Annual Christmas Program.

The donation celebrated the beginning of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month in October.
