Community is much more than just where we live. It is the heart and soul of each of the men women and children, businesses and civic government entities who coexist and affect each other’s lives. Harold’s Auto Service believes it’s our ethical responsibility and that of all businesses to re-invest a portion of revenues back into our community in a tangible way.
- To empower children to become leaders, Boys and Girls Clubs’ across North America enrich communities providing innumerable individualized programs designed to fulfill the needs of children in each community where they are active
- Harold’s Auto Service is extremely proud to support the Lethbridge Boys and Girls Club through no-charge vehicle maintenance and repairs for their child-transport vehicles. We have made an “Executive Level Achievement” commitment to donate up to $4,999 per year in vehicle service for club vehicles and look forward to enjoying our Giving Alliance Partnership with the Boys and Girls Club for many years.
- Our customers contribute in their own way by dropping coins into a collection bin on our front counter that we pass along to the club coffers.
FREE SENIORS’ VEHICLE SAFETY CAR CARE CLINIC ANNUAL EVENT
- Since 2011, Harold’s Auto Service has proudly partnered with our entire staff in addition to up to 73 generous business partners and individual volunteers each year to offer this free pre-winter car clinic for 40 new guest seniors. The event holds absolutely no obligation to any participants nor their guests.
- Each vehicle receives over $275 of free diagnostic testing and inspections specifically designed to ensure the vehicle is safe, roadworthy and able to withstand the challenges of winter weather and winter driving.
- To ensure they fully understand inspection findings staff members, each a qualified technician themselves, sit down with each senior to explain things in detail. When requested by the senior, a detailed, no obligation repair estimate is provided.
- The day is far more than just a vehicle appointment; it’s a social event where our guests meet our staff and other seniors in a very relaxed setting where they are welcome to, and visit as long as they want.
- While seniors and their guests wait for vehicle services to be completed they enjoy a veritable feast of donated cookies, pastries, coffee, tea and pop.
- Each senior is draws for a door prize as well as receiving a gift bag filled with a variety of prizes donated by ourselves and our many generous business partners. (Average value per participant $50 – $250 depending on donated prizes.)
- Each senior is eligible to win one of two $100 cash grand prizes we draw for at the end of the day.
- As a U of L Political Science grad, The University of Lethbridge is near and dear to Brian’s heart. We have sponsored this prestigious annual event more than 10 times. The dinner and silent auction hosted at and by Coco Pazzo restaurant raises funds for bursaries and scholarships offered by the Faculty of Fine Arts.
- All funds raised are added to an endowment fund that was created many years ago. Donated funds grow in perpetuity to the benefit of future Fine Arts students.
- The event is highlighted by a 4-5 course gourmet meal, entertainment provided by Fine Arts students and a silent auction of original varied media art work created by students, alumni and staff.
