As a way of showing gratitude and giving back to local heroes during unprecedented times, Dutch Car Wash of Aurora, CO has provided over $40,000 in free car wash services to essential hospital workers, teachers, and first responders over the past six months.

Like many car washes around the country, the wash temporarily closed its doors to comply with “Stay-at-Home” orders on March 26, 2020. On April 17, 2020 Dutch Car Wash was able to reopen, following strict new COVID-19 guidelines, offering “contact-free” washes with their license plate recognition technology and extra sanitary precautions.

Upon re-opening, owners Willy and Christina Beumer wanted to help the community and recognize the unsung heroes during these challenging times. They decided to provide some relieve by doing what they do best, washing vehicles. “If we work together with our community, we know we’ll pull through these uncharted times,” they said. “Our community couldn’t do this without them, and we want them to know we appreciate all that they do to get us through this.”
