Giving Back to the Maple Ridge Community

Minit-Tune & Brake| Monday, June 27, 2016

Each Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres location has a unique connection to the surrounding community. With 18 locations across BC and Alberta, it is not surprising that each has been able to leave its mark and give back to their area in unique ways.

The Maple Ridge auto repair location is no exception, and is happy to announce a new initiative that supports the Garibaldi Secondary School. The owner of this location, Dustin Jansen, had a great experience with the automotive program offered at the school. His involvement there led to a dedicated passion for vehicles and career in auto repairs. Today, the Jansen family is excited to be able to give back and support a new graduate’s lifelong love of cars.

What’s Happening at the Maple Ridge Auto Repair Location

Recently, a customer at the Maple Ridge location decided her vehicle was no longer worth repairing. A little creative thinking and a lot of generosity from the customer and trained technicians at the shop have led to a new initiative to give back to the community. As a thank you to the Garibaldi Senior Secondary School Dry Grad program, the Jansen family will be getting involved with this year’s graduating class.

The Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres have repaired the vehicle at no charge. Once the vehicle was running properly and ready for the road, the Jansen family decided it could change the life of one lucky graduate. The auto shop, customer and school worked together to donate the fixed vehicle to the Dry Grad Program. A lottery system has been set up that promotes abstinence from alcohol during graduation ceremonies and celebrations. It also gives students the chance to take home a new ride along with their diploma. The system will select one lucky graduate who will win ownership of the car! We would like to congratulate the entire class of 2016 and wish them luck in this fun contest.
