clinic 3

Skyline College’s Automotive Technology Department hosted a free car care clinic for students, single parents and low income families on Tuesday, May 20th. Eligible clients received safety inspections, brake inspections, oil changes and tire rotations all free of charge. The Heart Wrenchers (club for the female automotive students) organized the event in partnership with local repair shops and social service agencies in San Mateo County.

Funding for this event was donated by O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, Topline Autosport, Skyline College Organizations and Club Council and Helming’s Auto Repair. Students volunteered their time to perform the services and make recommendations for needed repairs. Over 25 low income individuals received much needed services. The Heart Wrenchers would like to thank our sponsors, the Automotive staff and faculty and the generosity of the automotive students for making this event a huge success!
