CANADA – Following the tragic fires in Northern Alberta, our 13 RV dealerships across Canada – Country RV (B.C.), Four Seasons RV Rentals (Alta.), Fraserway RV (Alta., B.C, N.S., Ont. and Y.T.), Roadmaster RV (Alta.) and Travelhome RV (B.C.) – committed to support the relief efforts of Samaritan’s Purse Canada and Canadian Red Cross. Thanks to our partners, customers and teams at our dealerships, we have collectively raised $448,022 in just four weeks.
James Epp, campaign spokesperson and owner of the Adventurer Group, thanks the teams at all 13 dealerships who got behind this goal, the partners and suppliers who gave financial support, and the customers who embraced the mission as they planned their summer adventures.
“While we certainly celebrate the amount of funds that have been raised since May 26, we acknowledge that there still is much work to be done, and that all those affected by the fires are still dealing with their losses,” said Epp. “We are committed to working closely with Samaritan’s Purse Canada and Canadian Red Cross to ensure the $448,022 raised will help rebuild these communities and make them feel like home again. We’re thankful to able to support these charities with such a sizeable donation. We will continue to keep you informed with how these funds are being implemented as the rebuilding efforts develop.”
The Adventurer Group raised these funds by:
- Donating $1,000 from every RV sold in Alberta
- Donating 10% of retail parts sold in Alberta
- Donating 10% of retail rental bookings made during the four-week period from our Airdrie and Edmonton rental depots
- Donating $500 from every RV sold at any of our nine dealerships outside of Alberta
- Offering a $500 credit on an Adventurer Group Cash Card for Fort McMurray residents purchasing an RV
- Matching donations dollar-for-dollar by 700 employees within The Adventurer Group
The four Alberta dealers – Fraserway RV Calgary, Fraserway RV Lacombe, Fraserway RV Edmonton and Roadmaster RV in Leduc – have partnered with Canadian Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse Canada in the past, raising $291,630 in relief funds toward the 2013 Calgary flood relief efforts. Fraserway RV Abbotsford also supplied three motorhomes to Samaritan’s Purse Canada as command centres to coordinate relief efforts following the 2012 wildfires in Slave Lake, B.C.
The Adventurer Group is comprised of 13 dealerships under five business names across Canada and continues to maintain their commitment to their mission (as a team, we do everything possible to ensure our customers’ vacation dreams are realized). Collectively, The Adventurer Group offers expertise in RV sales, parts, service and rentals.
