Toronto, Ontario – A new Volkswagen Routan minivan donated by the Toronto Automobile Dealership Association (TADA) will be used to transport life-saving organ and tissue donations for the Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN).
The new van is now the third in the Greater Toronto Area donated by TADA and will be used for organ and tissue retrieval. The association previously donated a Dodge Grand Caravan in 2002 and a Chevrolet Uplander in 2006.
“TADA has always been passionate about organ and tissue donation,” said Paul Stern, president of the TADA Foundation. “We know there is a shortage in organ and tissue donation in the Greater Toronto Area and through the donation of this van, we are working collaboratively with TGLN to improve the situation when every minute matters.”
