Volunteer student mechanics and local businesses teamed up with public agencies Saturday to provide 30 low-income families with a free oil change and basic tune-up of their vehicle.

More free "Car Care Saturday" events will be held throughout the year at Ridgewater College in Willmar for families who are receiving public assistance and are clients of Workforce Centers in Kandiyohi, Renville and Meeker counties. Additional events may be held in Hutchinson.
