Currently, 64 Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations in the Michigan, Toledo, Ohio, and Florida areas are raising funds to help free kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility during the 35th annual MDA Shamrocks program to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
From March 17, 2017 to March 31, 2017, participating Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations are adding an iconic paper Shamrock (pinup) to their purchase at check out for just a $1, $5 or a larger contribution.
The MDA Shamrocks will be displayed in windows and on walls in stores across the area and every community, visually declaring steadfast support to help kids and adults living with muscle-debilitating diseases.
“Each Shamrock sold is a symbol of strength, independence and life for kids and adults with life-threatening diseases who count on MDA to find answers and provide support,” said Cindy Clark, Fundraising Coordinator. “Thanks to the generosity of Valvoline Instant Oil Change employees and customers, we can help MDA invest in lifesaving research and support programs for these individuals so they can live the life they’ve always imagined and experience the world without any limits.”
Funds raised also make MDA summer camp possible for more than 70 area kids where they can experience the best week of the year at no cost to their families at Sherman Lake YMCA Camp in Augusta, MI.
The MDA Shamrocks program is the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day-themed fundraiser. This year, the MDA Shamrocks program will unite tens of thousands of retailers throughout the country to benefit the organization’s shared mission to find research breakthroughs across diseases; care for kids and adults from day one; and empower families with services and support in hometowns across America.
