SpeeDee Oil Change Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

The New Orleans metro-area locations will donate $2 from every oil change to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service recently announced a new oil change promotion during October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in support of the fight for the cure.

The New Orleans metro area SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service locations will donate $2 from every oil change to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation throughout the entire month of October.

Locally owned and operated, the first SpeeDee Oil Change location was opened in Metairie, Louisiana, in 1980. Since SpeeDee began in New Orleans, local owners say they are proud to give back to the local community while donating to a great cause.

According to the CDC, every year in the United States, about 240,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and about 2,100 in men, and about 42,000 women and 500 men in the U.S. die each year from breast cancer. SpeeDee turns pink for the first time in honor of those affected by breast cancer and to support the research to help cure the disease.

The SpeeDee locations listed below will donate money to Susan G. Komen every time an oil change is completed:

  • 8835 Veterans Blvd, Metairie, LA
  • 3211 Williams Blvd, Kenner, LA
  • 1714 Veterans Memorial Blvd, Metairie, LA
  • 1301 N Morrison Blvd, Hammond, LA
  • 2601 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA
  • 4001 Veterans Blvd, Metairie, LA
  • 616 Terry Pkwy, Gretna, LA
  • 3333 S Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA

“The entire Gulf Coast region has agreed to participate in our support of breast cancer research,” said Scott Accardo, vice president of operations at SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service. “We are expected to raise over $10,000 for the fight in just 30 days. I’m very excited to be part of this effort and am grateful for the SpeeDee team for coming together to support such an important cause.”

The SpeeDee Gulf Coast region will also participate in the 2023 Komen New Orleans Race for the Cure. The brand has a team of about 10 running in the race and will be outfitted in specially designed SpeeDee Certified pink uniforms and hats. Mr. SpeeDee (Mascot) will also be in attendance, along with a tent housing an inflatable, gift bags, and bounce back coupons.

“This is our first year joining in on the fight to cure breast cancer,” said Ron Stilwell, president, FullSpeed Automotive. “So many lives are affected by this terrible disease. Our New Orleans area SpeeDee locations are making an impact with their donations to Susan G. Komen, and we couldn’t be prouder of them.”
