Parent Promise and Hard Luck Automotive Partner on Vehicle Education & Preventative Maintenance
Parent Promise/Prevent Child Abuse Oklahoma, has partnered with Hard Luck Automotive Services, a nonprofit automotive shop in Moore, to host a day for Parent Promise clients to learn about basic vehicle maintenance, gain the skills to prevent unnecessary wear on their vehicle, and fix minor repairs. Hard Luck will provide Parent Promise clients with free labor and parts at reduced cost through NAPA Auto Parts in Moore. This allows clients to drastically reduce the cost of vehicle repairs and maintenance.
Adam Ely, founder of Hard Luck Automotive, emphasizes the importance of understanding your vehicle and the preventative maintenance needed to reduce the likelihood of experiencing an expensive repair. He plans to teach Parent Promise clients important skills like how to check and replace consumable items such as motor oil, radiator coolant, and brake fluid.
“Vehicle education is often passed down from generation to generation, and there are people in our community who have not been equipped with the knowledge needed to properly maintain their vehicle,” says Raegan Mach, Community Relations Director for Parent Promise. “Additionally, the majority of our clients are low-income families; consequently, vehicle repairs are often pushed to the bottom of their list of necessary expenses. Our goal for this event is to provide our clients with access to both vehicle education as well as affordable maintenance and repairs.”
This event is exclusive to Parent Promise clients, but Hard Luck Automotive regularly provides no-cost services Monday through Thursday from 8 AM to 3 PM.
