Redding Midas offering free oil changes for veterans
REDDING, Calif. - Midas in Redding, off Cypress Avenue, will be offering free oil changes to veterans Friday.
Doug Scott, the owner, noted he wanted to find a way to honor veterans, especially since his children are in the military. He said starting tomorrow morning veterans who show their Military I.D. will get a free oil change.
"It seems like the awareness of our veterans is waned a little bit and we would like to fire that up a little bit and show we do appreciate all our veterans," Scott explained.
Scott added it's first come first serve.
He brought on extra staff and hopes to serve 150 to 300 veterans. Scott is not sure how many veterans will show.
Scott mentioned Napa Auto Parts, Auto Zone and O'Reilly Auto Parts donated product to help make this happen.
Scott is hoping to make this an annual tradition for every Veteran's Day.
