An Ohio auto repair shop said its "Fix a Car for a Hero" project was a success.
Auto Medic of Lima, OH, was able to fix five vehicles as part of the project. The shop asked for veterans to sign up in October if they needed car repairs. They received applications and picked those for repairs.
Auto Medic fixed everything from brakes and shocks to sensors and tie rods, serving veterans of the U.S. Air Force, Army and Marine Corps.
The team donated 29 hours of labor and more than $2,000 in parts.
AutoZone and NAPA Auto Parts on Bellefontaine, Able Towing and Kenny's Auto Wrecking helped with the project.
Auto Medic of Ohio hopes to make this a yearly project and expand it. The shop is looking for additional sponsors. Call 419-604-2841 or go to www.automedicofohio.com for more information.
