Your Choice To Donate, Charity Vehicle Donation Program

With 35+ years in the British Columbia auto recycling industry, Your Choice To Donate is managed by auto-recycling veteran Lori King.

Lori’s career began with Husky Gas where she learned to be a mechanic. From there she worked with United Used Auto, Wasney Auto and Elcam Auto.

For fifteen years Lori also ran the highly successful Kidney Car Program for the Kidney Foundation of Canada’s BC branch.

Through her decades in the auto recycling industry, Lori formed relationships with:

  • Towing companies and their owners
  • Mechanics
  • Auto Dealers
  • Auto Recyclers
  • Scrap Metal Dealers
  • Various Automobile Associations

Lori’s experience and strong relationships paved the way for her success with the Kidney Car Program and more recently charitable organizations with car donation programs like the BCSPCA, Cyrus Centre and Teen Challenge.

Under Lori’s leadership, Your Choice To Donate develops relationships with and sets up charity car donation programs for not for profit agencies.

Lori is also co-founder and co-leader of Shifting Gears, a leadership, training and employee development program for the automotive industry.

What Charities Say

The Salvation Army Chilliwack is excited to be part of Your Choice to Donate. We have only been a part of the program for a year but already have received generous support. Lori is great to work with and walked us through every step of the process.

We are so grateful for the support of Your Choice to Donate, as they have come along side of the Abbotsford Hospice to help us support our community families by raising awareness and funds. We appreciate Lori and her huge heart of giving through this charity, which makes a difference for this community and so many others.

Since we teamed up with Your Choice to Donate, one vehicle donation alone was able to cover the vet fees of three animals! This gives us the opportunity to never worry and be able to give immediate care. We started this adventure because of our love of animals in general, but also from being lifelong rescue adopters. We see the growing numbers of small animals dumped on a weekly basis, this is our way to put a plug in it! We would love for you to choose us as your rescue of choice, our Littles would be thrilled.

Your Choice To Donate is much more than a place to get rid of your unwanted vehicles or scrap metal for recycling. Your Choice To Donate (Lori and Carlo) they come along side the organization help support us as we reach out to the unwanted. You could say we at Cyrus Centre are in the recycling business as we recycle and restore lives and families and Your Choice To Donate supports those efforts. We are very grateful for them and their support and encouragement.

Executive Director, Cyrus Centre

Every month Your Choice to Donate sends Adult & Teen Challenge funds from the donated cars and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the partnership. Your Choice to Donate makes it possible for the staff at Adult & Teen Challenge to focus on the addicted person in our care and reach our mission to Put Hope within Reach of Every Addict. Lives are being changed through addiction recovery at Adult & Teen Challenge.

For the past 5 years, Your Choice to Donate has worked in partnership with the Abbotsford BC SPCA to raise funds to help neglected, abused, and unwanted animals from our community. Your Choice to Donate has attended several fundraising events spreading the word that by donating unwanted metal and vehicles you can help change an animal’s life!
