Jiffy Lube Gives Back to Young People of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs

Published December 21, 2015 21:22

Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs have been the recipient of a very generous corporate donation of $8400 from Jiffy Lube Kelowna.

This generous donation will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the Okanagan ensuring all their vehicles receive a fuel injection service and semi synthetic oil changes to improve the fuel economy of each of the 37 vans and buses used to transport children and youth around the Valley.

Fuel economy and the smooth running of our vehicles are important. With 37 vehicles running on a daily basis, the overall cost of transporting hundreds of young people becomes astronomical. “When we are able to save on this type of expense we are able to use those cost savings to purchase much needed program supplies and equipment benefiting our children and youth in a valuable way. We are grateful for the generous support from our friends at Jiffy Lube Kelowna”. Jarrod Stocker, Facilities and Transportation Director of Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.

The Okanangan Boys and Girls Club works with over 1000 children, youth and families every day to help them discover and achieve their dreams and grow to be healthy successful and active participants in our community. Many of these young people are the people most in need in our community and need a safe, supportive place where they feel they belong. With the support of community partners like Jiffy Lube, Boys and Girls Clubs can provide the best possible programs and services and make a difference in the lives of our children and youth.

Jiffy Lube Kelowna owners Colin and Kendell Friess say they love the work the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs do here in Kelowna and throughout Jiffy Lubethe Okanagan Valley. “We love supporting organizations that give young people an opportunity to grow, overcome obstacles and prosper. The Club was a natural fit for our business to support.”

Thank you again to Jiffy Lube Kelowna, for helping make a difference to the children, youth and families of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.
