Mr Lube 2What a great surprise to be greeted by Darren Pierce, Owner of Mr. Lube Kelowna and Jeff Beech, Store Manager! They unexpectantly came by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs today and asked to speak to someone about a donation they would like to make. They apologize for the interruption to the day and dropping by unannounced but they really wanted to come by and drop off a cheque. Let’s just say it was no interruption and was a welcomed visit.

In September the Mr. Lube Kelowna store decided they wanted to fund raise in memory of Trevor Wyness, a Mr. Lube employee who had sadly passed away. They knew that one of Trevor’s support system, while he worked for them, was the local Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and decided they wanted to support our work too.

For the month of September they asked their customers to make a donation on behalf of Trevor and today they presented us with a cheque for $5000. Wow!

We are so grateful for Mr. Lube, their customers and staff for their support and for sharing in Trevor’s legacy. This donation goes a long way to helping give our children, youth and families the best chance at a Great Future!

Thank you Mr. Lube.
