All those ruts and potholes around town are hitting your car very hard, especially this year with the longer winter driving season. The owner of a local auto shop has some advice. Most manufacturers recommend an alignment every two years; but Suzette Teagarden with Reed Market Auto Service in Bend says for those of us who drive a lot in Central Oregon and hit potholes and road ruts, once a year is more like it. "With the snow like we have this morning, everybody’s got their snow tires off; you take the roundabout a little too fast. You hit your wheel on the right front. That definitely causes some damage there, usually to the suspension components.”  Teagarden says if you nail a pothole or fall into one of those big ruts, if you don't get a flat tire, it’s still good to take your car in to your mechanic to make sure you don't need realignment.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
