BLACKFOOT â€” Wanting to help those at need this Thanksgiving, Blackfoot Auto & Tire and Kirkham Auto Parts are offering free oil changes for those who bring in a turkey of at least 10 pounds. Â
Kirkham Auto Parts is supplying oil and oil filters for any vehicle that uses five quarts of oil.
"No diesels," said John Reyes, Kirkham Auto Parts store manager. "Diesels take gallons of oil."
Blackfoot Auto & Tire personnel are providing the labor at no cost to the customer.
"We'll top the fluids, too," said general manager Don Hawkes,
BLACKFOOT â€” Over 200 people participated in the Blackfoot Elks Lodge's Veterans Day fundraiser on Friday.
"Fundraising for such things as the Idaho Veterans Home in Pocatello are always subject to cuts," noted Brian Cornett, who serves on the Idaho Veterans Assistance League. "So we pick up the slack. But we're not the only ones. So do the American Legion, the Disabled American Veterans, the VFW."
Everyone should thank veterans, Corbett said. "It's because of that veteran that they have what they have."
