Samaritan Car Care Clinic volunteer Alan Nguyen moved to Atlanta, Georgia, for his pilot job with Delta Airlines. But just because he moved to Georgia doesn’t mean he still hasn’t helped with the Clinic!

Alan found a 2005 Honda Accord listed for sale by a fellow pilot. That pilot ended up donating the car to the Clinic once Alan explained he didn’t want the car for himself, but to be repurposed to help a low-income family being helped by the Samaritan Car Care Clinic.

Over 6 weeks, in between flying stints, Alan (who is very mechanical) replaced the timing belt; motor mounts; radiator; water pump; brakes, and much more. The very first time this Accord ever saw snow or salt was on the drive from Georgia to Covington.

Here is Alan with the Accord before the layer of salt got washed off.

Many thanks to Alan for sourcing the car, volunteering his time to do the repairs, then driving it from Georgia to Covington!

What a guy!!

Wow. How awesome is that!!

Nice work Alan!

On January 25, 2024, altafiber hosted an award luncheon for the twenty non-profits selected by the Bell Charitable Foundation during 2023 to receive grant awards. Two of those twenty recipients are Life Learning Center - Northern Kentucky and the Samaritan Car Care Clinic.

Life Learning Center’s grant was to address housing issues for members. The Clinic grant, no surprise, was to help address transportation barriers for low-income families.

Life Learning Center and the Clinic already partner to address transportation barriers for Life Learning Center members. It was wonderful for the Bell Charitable Foundation to select both of these Covington, KY, based non-profits!

Pictured is Laura Berkemeier from Life Learning Center, and Bruce Kintner from the Samaritan Car Care Clinic. The award memento is a real bell that has a functioning clapper, so yes, it can be rung!

Thanks again to Bell Charitable Foundation!

CLINIC ON THE AIR!

On Saturday morning, December 23, Clinic Director Bruce Kintner was a guest of Car Tech radio show host Wes Adams. The program airs most Saturday mornings on local radio station WDJO between 10-11AM.

Wes heard about the Samaritan Car Care Clinic, met with Director Kintner in November, and decided he wanted to offer his listeners a chance to hear about the Clinic. Wes shared on the air that he was raised by a single mom, so he absolutely understands the stress of juggling rent, groceries, and car repair bills. Many thanks to Wes Adams of Ulmer’s Auto Care and the Car Tech Show, and WDJO for letting the Clinic share about the great work we do!

Bruce is such a great guy 😊

Samaritan Car Care Clinic volunteers held a maintenance event this past Saturday, 12.09.2023. The appointments slots were filled with referrals from Ion Center for Violence Prevention, Brighton Center, Life Learning Center, and Gateway Community College’s Ready to Work program for single parents.

We were very fortunate to have had a great group of volunteers, so oil changes, tire pressure checks, bulb replacements and more all went smoothly. A frustration was seeing several cars with severe corrosion.

Thank you for your continued support!
