Abba's House Hosts “Single Moms Car Care Day” May 28

Monday, April 8, 2013

Abba’s House will host a “Single Moms Car Care Day” on Sunday, May 28 from 1-3 p.m. behind the Faith Building on the Abba’s House campus.   Members of the Zadok Choir will be washing cars and topping off fluids for free.  This service is part of the church’s annual “Mission Reach Out,” where the members of Abba’s House go out into the community to serve area schools, non-profits and other community organizations that need some assistance.

 

 

In past years, the Zadok choir has done yard work at Hixson Elementary, sung for nursing homes, and helped people with yard work and home repair.

 

This year, they are offering this free service to any single mom in our area.  They will check and top off oil, transmission fluid and wiper fluid.  Also, a free car wash will get the spring pollen off, if only for a few minutes.

 

Abba’s House is located at 5208 Hixson Pike, just north of Northgate Mall.
