March 23, 2018—Take 5 Oil Change, which has grown to over 300 locations in 16 states, was founded in Louisiana and has been serving customers throughout the state for more than 30 years. Throughout those three decades, Take 5 Oil Change has had a long commitment to giving back to those in need across Louisiana, providing thousands of volunteer hours and contributing millions of dollars to causes including children’s health, hunger, housing, transportation and more. It has supported the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 2006.
Last Tuesday, Take 5 Oil Change continued those efforts, hosting eight children being treated at Children’s Hospital-New Orleans at the New Orleans Pelicans versus Charlotte Hornets game.
Take 5 Oil Change started collecting donations for Children’s Hospital–New Orleans in 2007, with approximately 30 stores participating in the fundraising efforts. To date, Take 5 Oil Change has raised more than $700,000 to support the Children’s Hospital–New Orleans.
“We are grateful for our friends at Take 5 Oil Change for creating an unbelievable experience for some of our patients and their families at the New Orleans Pelicans game,” said Kim Coniker, Children’s Miracle Network Manager at Children’s Hospital - New Orleans. “The Pelicans night out may have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience for some of our families, and as a Children’s Miracle Network Corporate Partner, Take 5 Oil Change made it happen.”
This year, at all Take 5 Oil Change locations across the country, customers can add on $1, $3, $5 or even $10 to support sick and injured children in their local communities. Take 5 Oil Change aims to raise $500,000 by June 30, 2018.
