Seniors take advantage of free oil changes at YVCC

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- More than 40 senior citizens took advantage of free oil changes offered at Yakima Valley Community College Tuesday.  

The senior appreciation day was for people 55 and older. Students in the automotive program changed oil, air filters, topped-off fluids and did overall safety inspections. All the work is then checked by supervising instructors.

"People that called in for appointments are like really grateful and appreciative that we offered this so it made me feel kinda good that we're helping them out," said Scott Parks, student, YVCC.

Tuesday's event serves as good practice for the students and as a help for budget restricted seniors. The school plans to hold another Senior Appreciation Day this summer.
