Drive It Forward (Car Ministry)

Posted on May 12, 2021 at 9:10 am in .

 

Transportation is a HUGE barrier to stability for families experiencing poverty. St. Luke’s Car Ministry is a new group committed to helping families donate used vehicles to those in need, and to set up maintenance days for oil changes. 

Quarterly oil change days were held on Saturday, January 30 and April 24 on St. Luke’s campus. Volunteer mechanics did oil changes, topped off fluids and did minor systems checks for families, to help them maintain their vehicles. One of the main barriers to stability is transportation and regular maintenance is a great start. Restoring Hope and Circles families as well as congregation members who lost their jobs due to COVID were invited to participate in our pilot program.

Our next Oil Change Event will be
Saturday, July 31

Oil Change Event Volunteer Opportunities

There are several ways to help at our Oil Change events. We need people to be Hospitality Hosts, Car Prep, part of our Clean up team, Youth Apprentices and more. We especially need people to sign up to bring snacks for our mechanics and volunteers.
