Valvoline Instant Oil Change Raises More Than $110,000 For Children's Miracle Network
Valvoline Instant Oil Change, a business of Ashland Inc., raised $110,508 for Children’s Miracle Network, an international non-profit that raises funds for children’s hospitals. The fundraising event, which took place during the month of April, consisted of Valvoline Instant Oil Change customers purchasing Children’s Miracle Network signature paper miracle balloons. Four-hundred and forty-one company and franchise owned stores located throughout the United States participated in the fundraiser and displayed the balloons, which featured customer names. All of the funds raised will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals to support a number of initiatives. Donations through Valvoline Instant Oil Change will help create miracles by funding specialized medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of children.
“Children’s Miracle Network began its partnership with Valvoline Instant Oil Change this year,” said Brian Hazelgren, chief development officer, Children's Miracle Network. “Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of its employees and customers, we’re able to create miracles for the 17 million children treated at our hospitals each year.”
“We were so proud to have the opportunity to support such a great cause for these children in the communities where we live and work,” said Tony Puckett, president, Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC).
“The 6,500+ VIOC team members enjoy serving others on a day-to-day basis as we work to keep our customers safe on the road. The opportunity to do more for our communities with the help of our new partners at the Children's Miracle Network organization is one that we will continue to embrace and seek to make an even bigger impact in the years to come.”
