The Car(e) Clinic will be back in Arkansas City on April 14.

“If you or someone you know and care about is struggling to make ends meet, or just needs a hand with simple automotive care, we’re here for you,” said organizer Daniel Yocum.

The time slots are filled by appointment only, spaces are limited and appointments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Please contact me to get a guaranteed spot,” Yocum said.

Car(e) Clinic details

The Car(e) Clinic was created to help those who cannot afford to maintain their vehicles with free oil changes.

“If you are in a position to take care of your own vehicle concerns and maintenance, please leave spaces open for those who need them,” Yocum said.

Because of the support this ministry receives, there are plans to expand the program into Winfield and beyond.

“Hopefully before the end of the year, we will have (two to three) more locations up and running, reaching to Ponca (City), Derby and eastern Cowley County,” Yocum said.

To set an appointment, call or text Yocum at (918) 606-1951 or Bonnie Logan at (620) 719-6898.

“Leave a voice message,” Yocum said. “Please include your name and number so I can call you back.”
