Vancouver, British Columbia – Quick lube company Mr. Lube has launched a national partnership with the Zajac Ranch for Children, which offers Canadian children with life-threatening illnesses or chronic disabilities the opportunity to attend camp.
Through its Mr. Lube Foundation and Oil Drop Campaign, Mr. Lube has donated $25,000 to the Zajac Foundation to host the Mr. Lube Week at Camp Zajac. The money will be used to help with transportation and general camp costs.
“We’re really excited about this year’s Oil Drop Campaign,” said Stuart Suls, president and COO of Mr. Lube Canada. “We wanted to do something for children who suffer from medical conditions and who are unable to attend camp because they are either too ill or unable to afford it. Fortunately, we are supported in this effort by our customers and their amazing generosity.”
The campaign gives customers the opportunity to contribute to the Mr. Lube Foundation by purchasing paper oil drops as a donation. This year’s campaign will run throughout August. As a nationwide effort, Mr. Lube locations will also have the chance to nominate children to attend the camp. The company will be looking at hosting up to 50 children, each nominated from the surrounding area by one of the franchises.
Located on Stave Lake in Mission, British Columbia, Zajac Ranch is host to hundreds of children every summer. The Mr. Lube Week runs from August 8 to 12, 2010.
