Around the Industry: Meineke Car Care Donates More than $70,000 to Children's Miracle Network
In its 17th annual charity golf tournament to support the Driven Brands Charitable Foundation, Meineke Car Care recently raised $72,000 for The Children’s Miracle Network. The donation will support the hospital network that treats children who require care, whether they are battling cancer, suffering from a traumatic injury or are living with a genetic disease.
As part of a multi-million dollar fundraising commitment benefitting the 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada, Meineke asked its vendors, franchisees and friends to participate in a golf tournament benefitting children dealing with illnesses and other afflictions. One hundred percent of proceeds collected through the tournament have been donated to support the Children’s Miracle Network’s mission of serving every deserving child who comes in for treatment. Meineke’s $72,000 donation is part of the foundation’s overall goal to raise $1 million a year through charitable efforts.
“We are proud to support such a deserving cause through Driven Brands Charitable Foundation,” said Danny Rivera, president of Meineke. “Without the generous contributions from vendors, franchisees, employees, volunteers and friends, we could never have achieved this success on behalf of our charity. We can’t thank everyone enough for their support.”
Both part of Driven Brands, Inc., Meineke and Maaco support Driven Brands Charitable Foundation’s efforts throughout the year with in-shop promotions at the more than 1,400 locations. All funds raised from this campaign will help create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that will continue to save and improve the lives of millions of children treat at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the U.S. and Canada each year.
