HOUSTON, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Jiffy Lube® announces it has already reached more than 65 percent of its $1 million national fundraising goal for the 2010 Maintenance Partners for Life campaign.  Through the generous support of its customers, Jiffy Lube has already raised $658,655 for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement in just three weeks, as of February 22.

"Years ago, I lost my father to a heart attack, so this campaign is especially meaningful to me.  It's so important to educate people about heart disease while also funding research to help prevent it," said Rob Cooper, district manager for Jiffy Lube International. "If my family would have understood how much of a silent killer heart disease can be, we may have been able to do more to help my father eat healthier, exercise and live longer."

Jiffy Lube has raised $2.3 million for the cause since 2008. Customers can make a $3 donation at participating service centers through March 14.  In return, they will receive a Maintenance Partners for Life savings book with more than $100 in savings. Customers can also make an online donation at

"This campaign has proven year after year the impact that individual donations at a local level can make, and we're excited to see the continued enthusiasm from our customers, franchisees and service center employees in 2010," said John Sanfacon, head of marketing and innovations for Jiffy Lube International. "We are proud that the campaign is off to such an amazing start and we're confident that we'll significantly surpass our $1 million fundraising goal."

Top Fundraisers

During the first three weeks, several markets have already achieved great success, standing out as top fundraisers.  The top fundraisers in terms of percentage of Jiffy Lube customers making a donation are the service centers owned by PCJL, Inc. in Southern California (Lompoc, San Luis Obispo, Goleta, Arroyo Grande, Santa Barbara, Atascadero and Pasa Robles) at 143.98 percent of total customers; service centers owned by TCFL Group in Eastern Washington and surrounding areas (Spokane, Kennwick, Veradale, Richland, Pasco, Walla Walla, Clarkston, Liberty Lake, WA; Hermiston, OR; and Lewiston, ID) at 143.42 percent of total customers; and the service centers owned by Arendall Lubrication Centers LLC in Midlothian, VA at 93.35 percent of total customers.

The Jiffy Lube Maintenance Partners for Life campaign leverages the parallels between maintaining a healthy heart and a healthy vehicle.  Nearly 2,400 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day – an average death of one every 37 seconds – and 80 percent of the vehicles inspected during vehicle check-up events needed either service or parts.(1) Maintaining a healthy heart and vehicle is a matter of choice and the right choices can help maintain the health of both.  To learn about choices that can benefit heart health, visit and to learn about vehicle preventive maintenance, visit  Fans of the Maintenance Partners for Life campaign can also support the cause by joining the Jiffy Lube Maintenance Partners for Life Facebook Fan page at
