We believe in sharing our blessings with those around us, both in terms of our time and our money. It makes for a better community, but also makes us a better company.
Young Life Houston Central
Young Life Houston Central ministers physically and spiritually to inner-city students at Wisdom (formally Lee), Sharpstown, and Yes Prep high schools, and their affiliated middle schools. These schools suffer from the usual inner-city issues (drugs, gangs, teen pregnancy, etc), but their greatest peril is apathy. The staff and volunteers at Young Life step into the lives of these kids, bringing hope and the message of a God that loves them.
Young Life Houston Central is the primary charity that Brazelton Auto supports. Unlike suburban Young Life ministries, the parents of the kids served do not contribute to the ministry, so that burden falls on the community. Through November of this year Brazelton Auto has generated contributions for Young Life of $23,000 and should easily hit our goal of $25,000 for the calendar year. In addition, Lewis Brazelton serves on the area committee, and Lewis and Gabe Hinojosa lead a weakly mentor group at Sharpstown high school.
Three times a year (Christmas break and twice in late summer) Brazelton Auto hosts a complimentary Kid’s Class to teach young drivers all the things they should know about driving, that nobody teaches anymore. Subjects include;
- Changing a Flat Tire
- How to Jump a Battery
- What to do if your Car Overheats
- What to do if you're in a Wreck
- Simple tricks for getting Un-stuck
- What to do if the Police pull you over
- What does that Warning Light mean (and other signs of trouble)
If you have a young driver who would be interested in taking the class, click here and send us an email and put “Kid’s Class” in the subject line and we’ll make sure to notify you when the next class is coming up.
