After hosting eight fun and successful charity washes, Colorado Springs, CO-based Wild Blue Car Wash was able to help raise a total of $11,477.98 for its surrounding schools and non-profits during the 2019 charity wash season.
The wash donated 50 percent of the wash sales during the events to the organizations, while the charity volunteers vacuumed and dried vehicles for additional donations. Some groups also sold baked goods and refreshments.
“We are excited to partner with our local high schools and youth organizations to help them raise money for their activities," said Wild Blue Car Wash president David Begin.
The program is a win-win for all parties involved. The organizations earn money without worrying about sales, stock, or delivery; local residents are able to support these great groups while driving away with a professionally cleaned car; and Wild Blue Car Wash is given the opportunity to gain new customers. Plus, since the wash recycles 80 percent of the water and uses environmentally friendly soaps, it is better for the environment than alternative parking lot car wash fundraisers.
