Businesses in Surrey step up in support of veterans

REMEMBRANCE DAY: Coffee shop in Cloverdale, Mr. Lube among businesses offering special deals on Nov. 11

The Coffee Port in Cloverdale is donating all proceeds from drink sales on Remembrance Day to the Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Fund.

CLOVERDALE — On Remembrance Day, you can sip a hot coffee and help support Canada’s veterans all at the same time.

The Coffee Port in Cloverdale is donating all proceeds from drink sales to the Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Fund.

“We value our veterans and are excited to participate any way we can in supporting and honouring them,” said Cris Leonard, owner of the Coffee Port. “It’s our hope that we will be able to provide the Royal Canadian Legion #6 (Cloverdale Branch) with a significant contribution to the Poppy Fund this year.”

Last year, the Coffee Port raised $628 for the Cloverdale Legion.

As a bonus for coffee lovers, since Nov. 11 falls on a Wednesday, it coincides with the businesses’ weekly promotion, “Wake Up Wednesday,” where customers can get any size drink for the price of a small one. The Coffee Port is located at 18408 64th Ave. in Surrey. On Remembrance Day, it is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Mr. Lube offers veterans free oil changes

On Nov. 10, Mr. Lube locations across B.C. will show appreciation to Canadian Forces veterans by offering them a free warranty-approved oil change.

The program was first implemented in Kelowna in 2014 by franchise owner Darren Pierce. This year, Mr. Lube decided to extend the program across B.C.

There are more than 90,000 in B.C. and about half of them live in the Metro Vancouver area.

To receive a free oil change at Mr. Lube on Nov. 10, veterans or current military individuals must provide service ID or have a B.C. veterans licence plate. For store locations, visit
