Valvoline Instant Oil Change Locations Raise Funds for the Fight Against Cancer
Select VIOC locations are teaming up to raise money for American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery Program
ORANGE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Throughout the month of October, select Valvoline Instant Oil Change SM (VIOC) locations will offer customers an opportunity to donate at the time of their oil change to support American Cancer Society (ACS) and its Road To Recovery program. Transportation barriers are the #1 reason for missed cancer appointments and the Road To Recovery program provides free rides to treatment for cancer patients.
VIOC customers will be asked to make donations at participating VIOC locations in CA, DE, FL, LA, MD, and VA to raise much needed dollars for ACS. A complete list of participating locations can be found on ValvolineFightsCancer.com. Through different fundraising efforts and events, VIOC has raised over $493,000 for American Cancer Society since 2017, providing over 9,800 rides to patients in need.
“We are excited for the opportunity to once again partner with the American Cancer Society. They are a powerful organization on the front lines of fighting cancer, both locally and nationally,” says William Smelley, Vice President of Marketing for the VIOC franchisee.
“Family and friends may help, but over the course of several months, they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a treatment asset, and why it’s critical to raise funds for this program to help improve the lives of people facing cancer and their families,” said Chelsy Clark, Director, Corporate Relations for the American Cancer Society, “thanks to VIOC’s continued partnership and steadfast commitment to the fight against cancer, more patients will get access to life-saving treatment.”
