Take 5 Oil Change and Take 5 Car Wash has donated $1 million to support the expansion of the Children’s Medical Center in Plano, TX.

            “Children’s Health is grateful to Take 5 for their generous gift to help expand Children’s Medical Center Plano,” said Brent Christopher, president of Children’s Medical Center Foundation. “As their business grows across North Texas, Take 5 exemplifies their mission of supporting the needs of the communities where they live and work, helping Children’s Health meet the needs of our pediatric population, which is growing rapidly. The Take 5 donation will be recognized in one of the new patient family and visitor waiting areas on the Plano campus, providing a welcoming, comfortable space to decompress and rest from what can sometimes be stressful situations. With the support of Take 5, we’re continuing to make life better for children now and for generations to come.”

            Located on each floor as you exit the elevators, the family and visitor waiting areas are inviting spaces for families to meet with visitors outside of children’s rooms. These are particularly essential for families with children who are in isolation and cannot receive visitors in their rooms.

            Take 5 Oil Change and Take 5 Car Wash are part of Driven Brands, North America’s largest automotive services company. Through its charitable arm, the Driven Brands Charitable Foundation, the company has supported children’s hospitals nationwide for almost 20 years, donating more than $4 million since its fundraising initiative began.
