Operation Winterize is geared toward single parent families, the elderly, and families who are struggling financially. We know that the winter months can be hard on a vehicle so we set out with the goal of helping these families prepare their cars for the winter. For each car we provide a 15 point vehicle check which consists of: a free oil change, the checking/topping off of washer fluid, coolant, and transmission fluid, as well as checking the belts, brakes, and tires, etc. However, Operation Winterize has turned into much, much more than just working on cars. As families wait for their vehicles, we have a variety of activities for them in the Hangar. Each person gets a free meal. There is a room for the kids to play in as well as crafts, fun activities, and puppet shows to occupy their time. The gym is open for basketball. There is a relaxing spa for the women where they can get their nails done, have a makeover, eat tasty chocolates, and simply enjoy themselves for a bit without worrying about their kids. We also have local hairstylists that donate their time to give free haircuts for the families as they wait. All of this is done free of charge.
