MERIDIAN, Idaho — A mechanic shop in Meridian is continuing their tradition of helping out single mothers across the Treasure Valley.
Single moms can get a free oil change at Heritage Auto Repair Friday, March 15 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Those who want the oil change must first sign up by calling the shop at 208-887-1442 to make an appointment.
Heritage Auto Repair will take appointments until all timeslots are filled up.
Heritage Auto Repair Vice-President Becca Zanders said in a statement that the event is their way of giving back to the community.
"For 19 years people have asked why we host this event. For me, it's personal. My mom was a single mom," she said. "There were times of darkness in my youth, times when hope was hard to find. More than once, God showed up in our lives, shining a bright light into our dark corner. This light usually came in the form of someone who cared enough to venture into our world to give a helping hand. In honor of those who gave me light, I pass the torch along. If you are a single mom in need of an oil change, we hope to see you."
The free oil change event is being done in partnership with I Heart Treasure Valley. Heritage Auto Repair is located at 175 North Linder Road in Meridian.
