VIENNA, W.Va (WTAP)- 5/11/19
Fellowship Baptist Church changed oil for single mothers, widows, and wives of deployed military personnel for free Saturday morning.
The group of volunteers received oil and filters from O'Reilly Auto Parts and scheduled appointments to service as many mothers as possible. This is the fifth year the church has put on the program and says that they look forward to it every year.
“This is one of our favorite events as a church just because we enjoy seeing and talking to these ladies and helping them with something that, often, is left undone or is neglected,” explains Joshua Ferrari, organizer of the event.
The group of 50 volunteers changed the oil of 41 cars from 9 A.M. to noon.
Fellowship Baptist Church is changing oil for single mothers, widows, and wives of deployed military personnel for free on May 11th from 9 A.M. to noon.
The deadline to register for an oil change is April 27th.
The group has provided the service for five years and says that it’s a small way they can give back to those who do so much.
“Especially around Mother’s Day, they don’t get the appreciation they deserve,” says Joshua Ferrari, an event coordinator.
“When the mothers come in to the life center, we sit, we fellowship with them, we just let them talk. We even take the children over to a craft table. We let them do crafts so the mothers can just sit and relax,” describes Patsy Barker, another event coordinator.
