Recycled vehicles drive kidney campaign

The Kidney Car Program is a great way to make the roads safer, the environment healthier and life better for those with kidney disease.

Recycling an old vehicle by donating it to the Kidney Car Program is a great way to make the roads safer, the environment healthier and life better for those with kidney disease.

The Kidney Car Program is part of a series of Recycle for Life programs developed by the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

The program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, trailers, ATVs and farm equipment.  Donors receive a free vehicle tow and a tax receipt.

The BCAA Road Safety Foundation, has partnered with the Kidney Foundation, B.C. Branch in the program and receives 50  per cent of the proceeds from each vehicle donated by BCAA members.

Since 1995, the Kidney Car Program has recycled almost 25,000 vehicles. Funds raised help with educational programs, organ donation awareness and medical research.
