Richland Car Repair Charity Puts 200 Drivers Back on the Road

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash-- We all know the feeling, your car breaks down and all you can think about is how much it's going to cost to fix.

One local charity called Elijah's Pit Stop is helping people in need get their cars running again. In 2005, the charity was started by Bethel Church, but has grown to have many sponsors.

The charities president says they've helped more than 200 people get their cars back on the road or get a donated car.

"Loosing a car is kind of the edge of a cliff for a single mom or another needy person because all of a sudden they can't get back to work, they can't get their kids to school, they can't get their kids to appointments, and so forth," said John Schultz, President of Elijah's Pit Stop.

On Saturdays volunteers do free repairs at Leo's Line Up and Tires in Richland.  If you want to apply for the program you can do so at Bethel Church in Richland.
