Car Care Because We Care

The Car Care Because We Care Program is designed to keep the primary family vehicle of deployed active duty Air Force members in top running condition by providing preventive vehicle maintenance. This maintenance includes oil/filter change, lubrication, and vehicle safety checks on a grant basis. Due to extreme winter weather at some northern bases, winterization requirements may also be included with services. 


When performing this routine maintenance additional repairs or services may be identified by the mechanic as urgent safety issues. In these cases, families are encouraged to return to the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) to discuss an interest free loan from the Air Force Aid Society. The goals are to identify and repair problems before they become serious and more costly to repair and to introduce the recipient of the certificate to the A&FRC and its programs.
