Take 5 Oil Change Raising Money for Children
June 09, 2018 - Texarkana Gazette
The Take 5 Oil Change in Texarkana is raising money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a national nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for about 170 children's hospitals.
The funds raised in Texarkana will go to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston and the Children's Medical Center Foundation in Dallas.
Customers at Take 5 Oil Change are invited to donate $1 to $5 when paying for their services through June 30.
Take 5 Oil Change stores across the country are partnering with the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
"It is an absolute honor to partner with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals each year as we approach Father's Day," said Gabe Mendoza, president of Take 5 Oil Change. "We hope that this year, our customers are as enthusiastic about supporting such an incredible organization that dedicates an immense amount of time and resources to improving the lives and health of children. Take 5 is proud to make a difference and have our customers become involved in the experience as well."
So far this month, Take 5 has raised $300,000, with a goal of raising $500,000.
"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."
