Local Business to Donate Proceeds of Oil Changes to Honour House to Help Heroes in November

VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - Two Mobil 1 locations (64th Ave & 200th St and 56th Ave & Bypass) in Langley will donate two dollars from every oil change in November to Honour House Society to support our heroes.

To kick of the event, on November 1st Mobil 1 will donate the proceeds from all oil change sales from both locations to Honour House Society. Representatives of the Canadian Forces, Fire, Paramedics and Police will be onsite to show support for the event. There will be a barbeque at both locations from 12-4pm to show appreciation for customers supporting this cause, as well as a grand prize draw for a Heli-Jet trip to Victoria and stay at the Fairmont Empress.

General Manager of Langley Mobil 1 Lube Express Adam Coleman, a veteran of the Afghanistan conflict, hopes to raise $10,000 for this worthwhile charity. "Honour House is a cause that is near to me, as fellow friends I have served with need these types of services to help them rehabilitate."

Allan De Genova, President of Honour House Society said "It is fantastic to see a local business taking such initiative to support our heroes. November is a month for Remembrance. Honour House remembers those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and also provides accommodation for our heroes, who put their lives on the lines on a daily basis for our safety and freedom. We rely on donations from the community to keep the house up and running and Mobil 1's generous contribution will certainly help Honour House continue to serve our heroes."

Honour House, located at 509 St. Georges Street in New Westminster is a "home-away-from-home" for Canadian Forces Personnel, Veterans, emergency services (fire, paramedics and police) and their families to stay in times of need, while receiving treatment in the Metro Vancouver area. Honour House Society is a registered not for profit and charitable organization with a mandate to provide accommodation, free of charge, to our heroes.
