EZ Lube Donating $10 From Every Full Service Oil Change to Southern California Wildfire Relief Efforts
Southern California Based Company to Donate Portion of Sales to American Red Cross
SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 25 -- EZ Lube, LLC announced today that $10 (nearly 30%) of every regular price, full service oil change redeemed through the month of October will be donated to the American Red Cross to aid those affected by the Southern California wildfires. According to news reports, sixteen fires burning for four days across seven counties stretching from Malibu, north of Los Angeles, to the Mexican border, have killed five people, destroyed 1,500 homes, consumed 426,000 acres (about 665 square miles) and forced almost one million people from their homes -- the largest evacuation in California history. More than 70,000 homes remain threatened.
"Our hearts go out to the families who have been affected by the recent and ongoing wildfires blazing through Southern California," said EZ Lube co-founder Rick Teasta. "And as a Southern California based company, we want to express our extreme gratitude to the hard-working men and women aiding in the relief efforts."
