We all know that ease of transportation for a family is key for it to flourish. Whether it’s a mom trying to get her child to daycare early in the morning so that she can go to work, or a dad driving his son to a soccer game, a reliable vehicle is integral to each family's effectiveness and stability. We also know how expensive the cost of keeping a vehicle properly maintained is. There are many who struggle to just have the routine maintenance and upkeep on their family car completed regularly. There will always be a need in our community for this type of help. 

With the aid and guidance of volunteer certified red seal mechanics, iServe, along with the youth ministry PlaidAcademy, helped single parents, struggling families and seniors with this one simple act: an oil change. 

The Hopeful Cafe and Oil Change took place August 13, 2017 at Okanagan Adventist Academy. We completed basic car checkups and complimentary oil changes on 18 vehicles, and also provided refreshments, free child clothes, complimentary massages, and child care for individuals as they waited for their car to be completed.

We have yet to announce the date of our next event. For more information regarding volunteering, receiving help, or sponsoring an event, contact Jenna at (778) 484-3772 or email iserve@shaw.ca.
