Jiffy Lube supports our local communities
Through sponsorships and programs, we have donated to local schools, charities and other organizations.
LA Regional Food Bank
The Alamitos Group volunteered at the LA Regional Food Bank on March 15th. There was a group of 12 participants who sorted and packed over 19,000 pounds of food, equating to over 15,000 individual meals for the community in Los Angeles.
Backpacks for Brighter Futures
A special thanks to Jiffy Lube Southern California franchisee Heartland Automotive Services for their support two years in a row. On July 18th, Jiffy Lube volunteers stuffed over 1,000 book bags for the Foothill Family Service’s Backpacks for Brighter Futures program. On July 24th the Jiffy Lube volunteers gathered at the Backpack Give Away Fair where the children and families received their backpacks and supplies. This event brought the community together to provide young students from Glendale, Burbank and the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys with new backpacks stuffed with school supplies, allowing students in need to start the school year with essential tools to help them succeed in the classroom.
And last August, Jiffy Lube volunteered at the Family Foothill Services El Monte site where children came to pick up their backpacks for back to school. There were also activities set up for the children such as face painting, bookmark coloring, and writing thank you cards. The Jiffy Lube volunteers had a great time helping the children write thank you cards for their backpacks and to those who have supported the program.
Jiffy Lube supports the students in its local community. Robert Curry, Jiffy Lube franchise owner, participated at the Annual Mustang Career Day on March, 28th to talk to the students at Salesian High School in Los Angeles. Robert Curry enjoyed talking to the students about having a career as an entrepreneur and offering valuable advice.
Show Your Stripes
Jiffy Lube locations in the Los Angeles area are proud to have partnered with Clear Channel and the initiative Show Your Stripes. The goal of the Show your Stripes campaign is, “to generate awareness around the issue of veteran unemployment, encourage businesses to hire skilled veterans and help those transitioning out of the military find jobs.” We are looking to hire veterans in our Southern California locations.
Jiffy Lube joined in the fight against child abuse through our involvement with the Children’s Bureau #thegreatershare campaign. The intent behind this campaign was to create more awareness and conversations about the topic of child abuse. We proudly donated $10,000 to help cover printing expenses, and we hope by spreading the word, we can inspire more people to volunteer, donate or simply share ideas on how to participate in child abuse prevention.
