Jiffy Lube honored KleinLife volunteer Michelle McCurdy for her dedication and commitment to service with one year of free vehicle maintenance.
As part of the Jiffy Lube Drive To Do More campaign, the initiative reinforces the brand’s commitment to vehicle maintenance by recognizing and rewarding volunteers who rely on their vehicles to serve their community.
McCurdy has been a KleinLife volunteer for more than two years, typically serving up to seven seniors each week. A self-employed attorney, she looks forward to her weekly deliveries, noting she is sometimes the only person the seniors on her route speak to that day.
“I remember from childhood, my best friend’s mom would volunteer for Meals on Wheels, and I always thought it’s something I wanted to do,” she said. “When the pandemic started, I realized I had to do something to give back, so I looked up my local Meals on Wheels program and started volunteering in March 2020.”
The need remains high for clients served by KleinLife’s Home Delivered Meals program. Many of the clients are homebound or struggle with mobility, and report that the meal service helps them to feel safe in their home.
“At Jiffy Lube, we are dedicated to giving back in our local communities through our Drive To Do More campaign, and the work Michelle is doing in the Philadelphia area is making a difference in so many people’s lives,” said Rob Calderin with Team Car Care, the Jiffy Lube franchisee who owns and operates the service center near McCurdy. “To help Michelle continue her weekly deliveries, ensuring the seniors and some of the city’s most vulnerable receive healthy meals, we are honored to help keep her vehicle road-ready.”
As part of the collaboration, Jiffy Lube is providing a special discount on vehicle maintenance services to KleinLife Home Delivered Meals staff and volunteers, helping to keep their vehicles road-ready. The company also conducted an in-store fundraising campaign throughout October to raise funds to help provide nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to seniors. ••
