Through its employee hardship assistance fund, Charlotte, NC-based Take 5 Oil Change® is making grants available to help employees in Louisiana facing financial hardship due to significant damage to their homes, evacuation, and other hurricane-Ida-related expenses.

Take 5, which was acquired by Driven Brands in 2016, first started in Metairie, LA nearly three decades ago. There are now more than 40 Take 5 locations in the state of Louisiana, a combination of both franchise and company owned stores.

“In addition to the Take 5 employee hardship assistance fund, we are also formalizing a partnership with the American Red Cross to collect donations from customers at all open Take 5 Oil Change locations in Louisiana to support the disaster relief effort,” said Falconer Warren, director of charitable foundations for Driven Brands.
