Community Service Award  

 

2019 we presented Bill Ward of Auto Angels this award.   www.autoangels.org

 

Au†o Angels is an all volunteer ministry committed to meeting the transportation needs of those within our church community who are unable to meet those needs themselves.

Auto Angels was formed in 2005 after a small group of church members became aware of transportation issues families were having while participating in BelPres outreach programs. The ministry is Christ-centered with every meeting and workday opened in prayer. We profess to being part of God’s rescue mission here on earth and strive to be the hands and face of Jesus to those we serve. The services we offer include comprehensive inspections, oil changes, and brake jobs.

Au†o Angels operates under the umbrella of the BelPres Missions Department. 

Au†o Angels offers its services to members of the BelPres community and several affiliated non-profit organizations. Though we would like to help everyone who approaches us, the need is just too great. Because of our limited resources of time, talent and treasure, we must limit those served to the BelPres Community Outreach Organizations listed.

2018 this award was presented to Joel Starr, Dale Newman and Tony Verhey as they took on the Cruise to Colby Car Show and saved it from being cancelled.  This car show is held in Everett WA on Memorial Day weekend.   

 
 

2017 we awarded the Community Service Award to Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Steve Meyers.

 
 

Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. 

We partner with parents/guardians volunteers, and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving: higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships; avoidance of risky behaviors; and educational success.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. 

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Vision is that all children achieve success in life. 

Our Programs Start Something

Here's the proof. National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are:
  • more confident in their schoolwork performance
  • able to get along better with their families
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school.1
