For several years, Entrepôt Auto Durocher has been involved in our community. We believe in the possibility of creating a better world through our generosity and involvement in various organizations. Our commitment is directed to several areas of the community, including in the field of health with donations to the Maxime Letendre Foundation as well as ''Challenge des célébrités,'' in sports with volunteer involvement in the Club Richelieu de Laval, as well as in social commitments to the community. Entrepôt Auto Durocher believes it can make a difference in the community to accomplish great achievements.
The Maxime-Letendre Foundation's mission consists of collecting funds for various projects that are worked on by the regional Hematology-Oncology program of the Health Center and the Social Services of Laval. Entrepôt Auto Durocher is also proud to provide a vehicle for transporting people who require chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.
Last summer, Entrepôt Auto Durocher and its team made a cash donation to the Maxime-Letendre Fondation for each vehicle sold. This successful initiative, which is set to become an Entrepôt Auto Durocher tradition, will allow the Maxime-Letendre Fondation to further expand its support for those living with cancer.
Thank you to all our customers for helping us support such a worthy cause.
*** The Entrepôt Auto Durocher team was honoured at a Volunteer Dinner for the Maxime-Letendre Foundation, where we donated $14,010.***
We all have crazy schedules. With jobs, kids, relationships, healthy eating, exercise and sleep, sometimes 24 hours doesn’t seem like enough. This, however, is nothing compared to what cancer patients have to contend with every single day.
That’s why we’re glad to be regular donors to the Maxime Letendre foundation. As you know, we donate a portion of our profits from each vehicle sold to the foundation. This year, though, we’re going above and beyond by introducing Jeans Day. One day every six weeks, our employees can wear jeans during the workday if they donate $5 or more. Our team has wholeheartedly participated in this event, and we thank them for making this charitable opportunity possible through their generous donations.
We’ll also be raising more money next year, thanks to our “Weekend at Entrepôt Auto Durocher” event. At this annual event, our dealership serves free hot dogs, drinks and chips to customers. We ask only that our customers donate an amount of their choosing. All funds are then given to the Maxime Letendre foundation.
We’re proud that this year, Entrepôt Auto Durocher and its collaborators were able to raise $21,000 for this great cause.
We’re also happy to announce that the 2016 edition of the “Laciclo" bike rally, organized by CICL-O-SANTÉ and held on Saturday, July 16th, was a resounding success.
The money raised by this charitable event totals $15,100!
We’d like to thank the following people and organizations for making this event one of our best yet :
- The members of CICL-O-SANTÉ’s board of directors
- The members of the event’s organizing committee: Claude Garon, Guy Migneron and Jean Polloni

Entrepôt Auto Durocher is highly involved in its community, namely in the field of health. We know that nearly every one of our customers will be touched either directly or indirectly by some form of cancer. It is important that science devotes time and effort to research in order to help fight all forms of cancer. The research against cancer can be made possible primarily through private and corporate donations.
Entrepôt Auto Durocher is invested in this good cause, and we deem it important to get involved! As a contribution, we participated in Daffodil Day, and presented a $1,000 donation to the Canadian Cancer Society!

The Paws of Hope is an event organized by the Canadian Cancer Society. In the form of a March-Othon with your dog or dogs, the aim is to raise funds for the fight against cancer. Participants are asked to raise a minimum sum before walking with their dog, and we adjust the amount based on the number of dogs you will walk during the event day.
Entrepôt Auto Durocher is one of the main sponsors of this day. Cancer will most likely affect, in one way or another, every one of our customers, which is why it is important for us to contribute to such a good cause in order to help make a difference in people's lives!
