Birmingham, UK, October 12, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Keeping children safe is a priority for every parent, but we can't keep them safe if our cars are not. Hot summer conditions take a toll on automobiles that can affect reliability and even create dangerous driving hazards. That's why autumn is the ideal time to have the family car inspected and serviced.
Throughout October—National Car Care Month—the 47 Express Oil Change & Service Center locations throughout Central Alabama will donate $1 from each oil change, maintenance, repair service or purchase to the UAB Department of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at Children's Hospital. Children's Hospital is the state's single largest provider of specialized pediatric services for all forms of cancer, leukemia, brain and spinal cord tumors, hemophilia and other bleeding disorders and sickle cell diseases.
"The care these children receive from Children's Hospital of Alabama is immeasurable," said Ricky Brooks, CEO for Express Oil Change, LLC. "Our mission of service and the mission of Children's Hospital of Alabama are highly aligned. Our stores and employees are excited to be able to give back to the programs that benefit the children and their families."
"Motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the U.S. so we can think of no better charity to partner with for this than Children's Hospital," said Clay Creveling, Vice President of Marketing for Express Oil Change, LLC. "The best time to check out a maintenance and repair facility is before you need one. Motorists usually need no more than 10 minutes to have their vehicle looked at by one of our professional technicians who can quickly determine if any maintenance or repairs have been overlooked and need to be performed."
Services offered include everything from oil changes, tire rotation and balancing, headlights, wipers to brakes, batteries, belts, and other mechanical services. To ensure automobile safety and reliability and to protect the precious lives of children everywhere, consider these tips:
