It’s our way of giving back

We appreciate the loyalty and trust DeKalb County vehicle owners have been giving Bockman’s Auto Care for over 55 years. We take pride in giving back to our community. It’s just one way we say “thank you!”

Through our membership in the DeKalb County NAPA AutoCare Center group — a coalition of vehicle repair facilities in DeKalb County under the NAPA AutoCare umbrella — we donate a portion of each month’s oil change revenue to select local charities and causes. Here’s the 2020 schedule of local charities we donate to through this program:

  •  January: Hope Haven
  • February: Safe Passage
  • March: The Goodfellows
  • April: Society of St. Vincent de Paul
  • May: YMCA Strong Kids
  • June: Tails Humane Society
  • July: Opportunity House
  • August: Toys for Tots
  • September: Pay It Forward House
  • October: Lets Talk Turkey
  • November: Freezin’ for Food
  • December: Elder Care Services

Know that when you come in for an oil change service, you are supporting local needs as well as giving your vehicle a critical and much-needed scheduled service. Thank you!

Every Veteran’s Day, we offer free oil changes to those who have served our country. It’s because of their sacrifices that we can enjoy the freedoms and privileges we all take too much for granted.

If you are a U.S. veteran, be sure to contact us just before Veteran’s Day to schedule your free oil change. We’ll happily change your vehicle’s oil and oil filter, check your fluid levels and top them off where necessary, and check other items like tire pressure and lighting. Thank you again for your service to our country.
