After hosting eight fun and successful charity washes, Wild Blue Car Wash was able to help raise a total of $11,107.30 for its surrounding schools and non-profits.

On event days, the wash donated 50 percent of wash sales during the fundraiser 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. "We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported these local youth organizations. This was our biggest charity wash season so far!"

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 Wild Blue recycles 80 percent of its water and uses environmentally friendly soaps, it is better for the environment than alternative parking lot car wash fundraisers.
