Automotive Service Franchise Express Oil Change and Service Center's Change-A-Life Campaign Benefits The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer | Automotive Service Franchise Express Oil Change and Service Center's Change-A-Life Campaign Benefits The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer.

(BIRMINGHAM, AL) - Can getting an oil change help cure childhood cancer? Throughout September, with the help of Express Oil Change and Service Center, it can.

Starting Sept. 1, Express Oil Change will donate $1 to Children’s of Alabama for every oil change performed in one of their 35 participating Birmingham-area locations. All proceeds will benefit The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s of Alabama.

The organization is hosting kick-off parties at the McCalla, Valleydale, Mountain Brook, Alabaster, Trussville (Main Street) and Eastwood locations on Sept. 1. The celebration includes giveaways, tents, food, drinks and more to promote the company’s Change-A-Life campaign.

“Express Oil Change wanted to give back and make a difference in our local community, so we approached Children’s five years ago with this idea,” said Garland Quinn, Associate Marketing Manager at Express Oil Change. “Since then, we have donated more than $160,000 to fund the art therapy program, as well as cancer research.”

The art therapy program is meant to address not only the medicinal needs of patients, but the emotional ones too.

“The therapy is more than just art to the children,” said Sarah Margaret Wade, associate licensed counselor and art therapist. “It gives our patients a time to have fun, make a mess and is a creative way to ultimately express how they are feeling. Art can give them more control over their environment.”

Fall is an ideal time to perform routine maintenance on cars, as the hot summer conditions take a toll on most vehicles. Excessive heat is one of the main reasons for reduced battery life, according to the Car Care Council. Annual vehicle inspections may help drivers avoid costly repairs such as this. Professionals at Express Oil Change recommend an oil change every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first, as one of the most important preventative maintenance services which can be performed on a car.

Express Oil Change offers a full service, 10-minute oil change. Customers do not need an appointment and can wait in their vehicles while their cars are being serviced. The maintenance covers replacement of the oil and oil filter, re-filling of fluids and a 20-point safety check of the vehicle.

More information and location addresses are available at and, or by contacting Garland Quinn at
