For 12 years Take 5 Oil Change locations have raised more than $1.17 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit raising money and awareness for nearly 170 children’s hospitals. After raising $426,506 in 2017, Take 5 Oil Change set their sights higher.
“We know that this year our customers were enthusiastic about supporting such an incredible organization that dedicates an immense amount of time and resources to improving the lives and health of children,” said Gabe Mendoza, president of Take 5 Oil Change.
From May 25 to July 13, over 320 Take 5 Oil Change locations across the country raised more than $500,000 benefitting 35 hospitals across 20 states. Customers made donations from $1 to $5, proving a small act of kindness can make a big difference.
"Partnering with an organization that has been dedicated to helping children in each of the local communities it serves for 35 years is something that we take immense pride in," Mendoza said. "Knowing that our donations, including the funds raised through our customers, will be immediately invested back into our local children's hospitals to purchase life-saving medical equipment and care is why we continue to partner with this organization year after year."
