TORONTO, Ont. — Toronto-based transport company Snowbirds Auto Connection has announced it will be donating a portion of its profits to the Aaron’s Apple charity. Aaron’s Apple is dedicated to raising funds for chronically ill children whose families are unable to afford medical treatment.
The company has been donating 50 cents to the charity for every invoice processed since March 2. Ron Ohayon, owner and CEO of Snowbirds Auto Connection, said he initially became involved with the charity through connections with a close family acquaintance.
“My wife Lisa and I became involved when we discovered our friend’s son, Aaron had been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease,” said Ohayon, adding that Aaron’s medical bills were exceeding $40,000 per year. “It’s really important to us that we help in any way we can. We have been actively involved with the charity since it began and plan to continue our involvement so we can help kids like Aaron get the medication they need to stay well.”
Aaron’s Apple provides direct funding to the SickKids Patient Amenities Fund. The fund provides financial assistance to thousands of families covering a wide range of needs such as transportation, accommodation, childcare, medical supplies and medication.
