WILLIAMS, Ariz. —Williams Neighborhood Group is hosting its fifth annual free car care clinic for single women, mothers and senior citizens Nov. 13
The clinic takes place at G & M Tires, 441 E Route 66 in Williams between 1 and 3 p.m. Attendants will inspect fluid levels, belts, tire pressure and basic vehicle conditions in preparation for winter driving.
“Anything that is small that we can fix, we will,” said coordinator Daniel Miller. “Otherwise we will advise the owner how long they have left on their brakes, belts or any other items that look like they are starting to wear.
Miller said the Neighborhood Group offers the service this time of the year so drivers can prepare their cars for winter driving.
Miller said they are catering to single women and senior citizens, but anyone who needs assistance is welcome to stop by.
“Our target audience is single women. The idea being they might not have someone to help them take care of things,” Miller said. “It’s too alleviate the concerns about their car.”
Miller said the group also tries to educate the attendees about their cars so they will have a better understanding when dealing with mechanics.
“Unfortunately there are crooked mechanics out there so when you don’t know anything about your car it’s easy to get sucked in,” he said.
The Williams Neighborhood Group is one of four neighborhood groups that offer weekly Bible studies and a monthly church service. Their mission is to worship Christ and provide community assistance where needed. They sponsor the annual Kite Festival, the car care clinic and the Wood for Warmth programs.
“We feel strongly that Christ has called us to care for communities and bless our communities,” Miller said. “We strive to be a blessing by using the abilities and gifts that God has given us to take care of our community.”
Miller said the event has become popular in Williams. He said they started with five vehicles the first year and attendance has almost doubled each year. They are expecting around 23-30 attendees this year.
G & M Tires is donating the use of their facility for the event, and CarQuest and Café 326 are sponsoring the event. Refreshments will be provided to customers while their vehicles are being serviced. More information is available from Daniel Miller at (816) 719-8470.
