Single moms invited for oil change in Aldergrove

Admittedly, many women hate to get their hands too dirty. And the thought of changing oil in their car – even if they know how – is out of the question.

Well, two dozen single mothers have a chance to have their oil changed for free – and they won’t have to get their fingers dirty – thanks to the Acts of Kindness (AOK) team from the Aldergrove Seventh Day Adventist church, explained pastor Melissa Cooke.

 â€œWe do this two times a year, and we continue to make this event available to single moms, especially moms with young kids, because we know that being a mom is a hard but rewarding work,” said Cooke, who herself just returned from maternity leave.

“We would love to give single moms a chance to put their feet up and have a break,” she explained, noting that the single moms who register get their oil changed, car washed, and vehicle vacuumed.

And on oil change day – Sunday, May 4 – there will also be a few perks, including some light snacks and door prizes.

The church’s AOK ministry offers several programs to help people in need in this community, including the Extreme Home Repair, the Mini-vans for Moms, and the Single Mothers Oil Change.

To register for this spring’s oil change, single moms must register soon by calling 604-856-5830 with the vehicle make and model and the litre size of the engine.

This free oil change concept offered by the AOK team started by the Aldergrove church more than a decade ago and has proven so popular that other organizations in the community have followed suit.
