Customers of Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers in southern Alabama can participate in raising funds for a local children’s hospital. According to WBRC FOX6 News, for each vehicle serviced during the month of April, Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers will donate $1 to the “Healing Expressions” Art Therapy program at the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders.
“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,” manager Mike Murray told WBRC FOX6 News. “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.”
This is the 13th year for the oil change fundraising campaign, and it is something everyone gets excited about.
“It means a lot to me to be able to do something for the community and give back, but especially for children’s hospital, that’s why we’re here, to change oil and to change lives,” Charlie Joueran, an Express Oil Change Hood Technician in Hoover, told WBRC FOX6 News.
