Alabama Shop Pledges April Daily Donation
April 4, 2019—An auto repair shop in Alabama has pledged to donate daily in April. According to WBRC FOX6 News, Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers in Birmingham, Ala., will donate $1 dollar for each car serviced during the month of April.
“It’s really rewarding. It’s nice when you explain to the customer, 'hey, a portion of your oil change is benefiting children’s hospital,' and they are excited about it. As we are,” said manager Mike Murray to WBRC FOX6 News.
The donations benefit the hospital's "Healing Expressions" art therapy program at the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders.
“My son has been a patient before at children’s hospital before, not for cancer, but he has been to children’s hospital, so I know what goes on there and the meaning of that is important to me,” Murray said to WBRC FOX6 News. “We enjoy supporting them as much as we can.”
