Local church and businesses team up to help single moms, widows

New Covenant Church together with Fort Dodge Transmission, Laughlin Auto Repair, Advance Auto Parts, and O’Reilley Auto Parts are teaming together for a free oil change for widows and single moms with minors still living at home. This is an event that New Covenant has been involved in since 2002.

Volunteers from New Covenant will be performing the labor on the vehicles and the women’s ministry will be providing hospitality while the car owners wait for their vehicles to be serviced.

This one-morning event will take place from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 29. Oil changes are by appointment only.

Any single mom with minor children still at home or widow who would like to take part in this event can call Jack at Laughlin Auto Repair, 573-5955. You must supply your VIN, year, make and model of car including engine size.

Please call to establish your appointment since there is a limited number of vehicles that can be serviced. Cut off date to make appointment is Sept. 21.
