Community support builds for Free Oil Change Program

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Volunteer run organization providing free full service oil changes launches a fundraising campaign to reach out to more families in need.

Now in its third year of operation, “Oiltober” provides free full service oil changes to low-income residents of the greater Shoreline/Seattle neighborhoods. The program is entirely volunteer run.

“We are all passionate about supplying a tangible need to our neighbors. When your car breaks down, it's tough to go to work, missing work can mean losing a job, losing a job can mean losing your home,” said Tarah Wrenn, Program Coordinator. “Knowing this potential downward spiral inspired the vision for free oil changes. “

Overwhelming demand for the service prompted the organization to provide a second event in the spring, serving more than 60 families in a few short hours.

“With community support we would like to continue providing this much needed service twice a year,” said Tarah.

To meet the growing demand the organization has launched an online campaign to raise the fund to provide oil, filters and additional supplies necessary for the event.

The fall Oiltober event is scheduled for October 18th. To register for the event or to volunteer, contact Tarah Wrenn
