Kris Chisholm speaking at Car Care breakfast
Kris Chisholm, executive director of the Car Care Program, speaks to attendees at the annual Car Care Program Prayer Breakfast at its new repair shop location at 4353 County Road 82 on Tuesday morning. The non- profit program is designed to not only give safe and reliable vehicles to people in need, but to also provide education regarding insurance, finances and basic vehicle maintenance. The organization relies on donations and volunteers to provide its services, which may soon be expanded to include classes for high school students and others, Chisholm said.
