Autobell® Car Wash employees from the company’s Maryland stores conducted a beach cleanup of Kent Island’s Terrapin Nature Park on October 27, braving the nor’easter that unfortunately caused the cancellation of the day’s official event planned by the Kent Island Beach Cleanups organization. The volunteers were paid by Autobell for their time and treated to breakfast and lunch by the company.
The dozen employees from the Bel Air, Annapolis, and soon-to-open Chester, MD Autobell locations came armed with company-provided cleanup supplies, including boots, gloves, grabbers, and trash bags. They collected an estimated 200 pounds of trash consisting primarily of glass bottles, along with an assortment of other items.
“Best practices for environmental protection are integral to the Autobell operation and are instilled in our company culture,” said Autobell district manager Joseph Noel. “Everyone enjoyed the chance to serve the community that day in the company of their co-workers.”
