CARPROOF hosts free day for kids at Storybook Gardens

LONDON, ON, Aug. 30, 2012 - Yesterday, local families were greeted with a surprise when they brought their children to Storybook Gardens for an end-of-the-summer outing. Thanks to CARPROOF Vehicle History Reports, a London, Ont.-based company and a provider of vehicle history reports, kids received free entry into Storybook Gardens for the day.

The free admission was part of CARPROOF Day, an event that the company sponsored as a way of thanking the London community for their continued support over the years. The day also included free train rides for the whole family, a kid’s colouring contest, prizes and giveaways. Over 1,000 kids came out to Storybook Gardens, making the event a great success and a fun day for all.

“CARPROOF is a leader in our industry in Canada, but we were founded and still make our home here in London. It’s very important to us to give back in general, but in particular to our own community. CARPROOF Day at Storybook was a fun idea to give London and area kids a wonderful day of play, on us,” shared Kathleen VanLeeuwen, finance manager and one of several CARPROOF employees responsible for organizing the event.

The Storybook Gardens event was another in CARPROOF’s Drive to Help efforts, which demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to help out the many wonderful charitable organizations here in London and across Canada. In the past, CARPROOF has raised money for Canadian Tire Jumpstart, participated in clothing drives, spent an afternoon preparing food baskets at the London Food Bank and purchased presents and food items to help families have a great Christmas.
