One Warm Coat @ Jiffy Lube
Oct 22 @ 12:00:00 AM – Nov 4 @ 11:59:00 PM

One warm coat – it’s a simple winter necessity. But not everyone has access to one. You can change that! Your donation of one warm coat can make all the difference this winter. 570 News invites you to donate a new or gently-used clean coat for a child who needs one!

Drop it off at a Jiffy Lube near you until Sunday November 4th, and the Salvation Army will distribute them to kids in need, right here in our community!

Thanks for the warmth – of One Warm Coat. From Jiffy Lube and 570 News!

JAWR Entrepreneur Hall of Fame

Sun Life Financial & Izzio Financial


JA Waterloo Region’s Entrepreneur Hall of Fame,  celebrates local business founders who have made a positive, lasting impact in our community.  Originally created by the Prosperity Council, the event was hosted by Communitech from 2006 to 2012 and had been on hiatus until JA Waterloo Region carried it on in 2015. We are excited to host this event as a natural evolution and extension of our long-standing Business Spirit Awards. The JA Waterloo Region Entrepreneur Hall of Fame will honour the traditions from previous events while incorporating elements celebrating youth entrepreneurship. It connects the past with the present! At the same time, it recognizes the trailblazing spirit cultivated by Junior Achievement’s Company Program.
