New Milford auto shop raising money for culinary school

Any oil change done at Affordable Automotive in New Milford this month will translate to $5 for the Community Culinary School of Northwestern CT.

This is done through the Affordable Automotive Giving Back Program.

Affordable Automotive is owned by a husband-and-wife team, Dimitri and Rose, who have lived in New Milford with their two children for more than 25 years. Affordable Automotive is located at 32 Executive Drive.

Appointments can be scheduled through the shop’s website, or by calling 860-354-2266.

The Community Culinary School provides job and life skills training in the food industry to unemployed and underemployed adults. The food made in the classes is donated to the New Milford Food Bank.

For more information on the school, contact Dawn Hammacott, Executive Director, at 203-512-5791 or by email at culinaryschool@sbcglobal.net. Information can also be found on the school’s website .
