On Saturday, October 16, Christian Brothers Automotive will celebrate its 11th annual National Service Day, a coordinated community giveback initiative to provide oil changes and other free services to individuals in need.
Two local shops, Christian Brothers Automotive Happy Valley (5400 W. Happy Valley Road in Phoenix) and Christian Brothers Automotive Peoria-Thunderbird (13675 N. 75th Avenue in Peoria) will be participating.
The event, occurring from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on October 16, will provide single moms, widows and families of disabled individuals with oil changes by appointment only at no cost while supplies last. During the event, the two automotive repair shops will also conduct inspections on every vehicle, identifying safety concerns and performing free repairs as needed. There will also be entertainment for children and plenty of food and hospitality. Together, these two locations will provide more than $30,000 worth of service to those in need.
Typically, Christian Brothers Automotive is closed on Saturdays, but will open the bay doors for this special once-a-year event.
“We are so grateful for our local technicians who are donating their time and working this event out of their desire to love their neighbors,” says Matt Hunter, owner of Christian Brothers Automotive Happy Valley, who is hosting his second annual National Service Day event. “We’re a people business first, and an automotive business second, and we take pride in our ability to serve local community members. Not only will National Service Day be an excellent opportunity to take care of those in need, but it will also be a festive community gathering, amplifying our brand’s mission.”
Cal Pascanu, owner of Christian Brothers Automotive Peoria-Thunderbird, is hosting his fourth annual National Service Day event.
Christian Brothers’ National Day of Service was originally started by a franchisee in Austin, Texas in 2005 as a way to give back to their community with an allocated day of service. What originally started in Austin as a day to give free oil changes to single mothers and other community members in need quickly grew to a company-wide service event by 2010. Now, over a decade later, National Service Day has become a cornerstone of the brand that is held annually on the second Saturday of October.
