A Tennessee Valley church is helping single parents with their cars.

Saturday, Silverdale Baptist Church hosted a breakfast and oil change at S&S Auto.

An event organizer told Channel 3 they saw a need in the community to help single parents maintain their cars.

They didn't just change the oil, they also looked at tires and made sure all the cars were running well.

Volunteers said it's all a small gesture that goes a long way.

"An oil change is not a lot of money, but it is for a single parent trying to keep food and clothes and everything else for their family," event organizer Bill Hollis explained.

Hollis said they've been doing this every year since 2008. They started the event in the church parking lot before partnering with S&S Auto.
