Wichita Repair Shop, O’Reilly Auto Parts Give Holiday Gift Of Free Oil Changes To Single Moms, Widows

Coleen Suffield, owner of South Seneca Car Care in Wichita, Kansas, announced that the company is partnering with O’Reilly Auto Parts and local charities to bless 31 single mothers and widows with a free oil change during the holiday season.

WICHITA, Kansas – Coleen Suffield, owner of South Seneca Car Care in Wichita, Kansas, announced that the company is partnering with O’Reilly Auto Parts and local charities to bless 31 single mothers and widows with a free oil change during the holiday season.

“I’m a single mom of four children and when they were young, money was extremely tight and the holiday season was rough,” Suffield said. “It was hard to find money to buy food, let alone gifts for the kids, and you could forget about money for car maintenance. Every little bit counts at this time of year.”

For many single mothers and widows, paying for groceries and monthly bills must take precedence over even basic car maintenance costs. The oil change offered through the generosity of South Seneca Car Care and O’Reilly Auto Parts is a holiday gift that can make a huge difference in the life of an individual.

An oil change is a task that’s essential to keep a vehicle’s engine in good working order and prevent further problems from developing, but changing the oil can be a luxury for widows and single mothers struggling to make ends meet. Many single mothers have seen their earnings decline by up to 20 percent since 2007. It’s left little disposable income for even essentials that help keep their households mobile.

The free oil changes “are a holiday gift of caring,” Suffield said.
