PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Many people dread going to the auto shop to get their car serviced.
So it came as a big surprise for a single mom when her $6,500 bill was on the house.
Emily Shy is a single mom who is doing the best she can but it's not easy while juggling two jobs, school and daycare for her daughter.
On top of that, Emily recently learned her car needed very expensive repairs.
"Without a car that runs I can't do any of it," Shy said. "I can't work, can't take her to daycare. Can't go to my classes ."
You could say Shy could use a break and that's just what she got when she brought her Chevy Blazer over to Community Tire Pros and Auto Repair in Glendale.
Owner Howard Fleischmann instructed his mechanics to fix the vehicle and then charged Shy absolutely nothing.
"It hits our heart because we want to give back to communities and we see where we can make a difference and see where we can actually give somebody a leg up," said Howard Fleischmann of Community Tire Pros and Auto Repair.
