DAVIE – Lowell Gelin, Owner of On Call Mechanics, had a small fire in his shop a few days ago. Unfortunately, he was left with third-degree burns on his feet and won’t be able to work for a while.
For those who have taken their car to him to have it serviced, know how passionate he is about fixing cars and making sure people have vehicles that are safe and in good working condition. He will need some support over the next few months since he will be unable to work.
I hope that you will open your hearts to give even if you may not know or be familiar with his work. We never know when we might be faced with needing help from people we know or don’t know.
