After eight successful car wash fundraisers, Kwik Car Wash’s 2015 “Wash for a Cause” season has officially come to an end. Overall, Kwik Car Wash helped raise a grand total of $7,106 for several local charities.

On event days, the wash donated 50 percent of its wash sales to the organizations, while volunteers were on site, vacuuming and towel drying vehicles for additional donations. Some even chose to host bake sales, BBQs, and raffles.

The program is a win-win-win for all parties involved. The organizations earn money without worrying about high-pressure sales, stock, or delivery; local residents are able to support these groups while driving away with a sparkling clean car, and Kwik Car Wash is given the opportunity to gain new customers. Plus, since Kwik recycles 90 percent of its water and uses environmentally friendly soaps, it is better for the environment than alternative parking lot car wash fundraisers.
