ZIPS Car Wash is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a national partnership with Folds of Honor as the company fulfills its $20,000 Give Back Tour to students sourced by Folds of Honor, a national non-profit organization that supports military families of fallen or injured soldiers.

Partnering with Folds of Honor, ZIPS is donating $1,000 scholarships to 20 students this year to fuel their academic dreams. In addition, ZIPS customers can donate directly to Folds of Honor through a car wash purchase at 260+ ZIPS washes through November 11.

“We’re honored to commemorate our 20th anniversary with financial gifts in the form of educational scholarships to students across the country through our national partnership with Folds of Honor,” said Gene Dinkens, CEO, ZIPS Car Wash. “We’ll recognize over 20 scholarship recipients in 2024 to honor American heroes and fulfill our $20,000 Give Back Tour commitment to Folds of Honor with the hope that we can make a life changing impact on military families.”

The first of many recipients of scholarship monies were recognized last month at an Oklahoma City Baseball Club matchup against the Reno Aces. Will Maynard, son of the Late Army Corporal Aaron Steffen, was the first to be recognized that night. Will’s father instilled in him the importance of treating people with kindness and spreading compassion always.

Rayden McVey and his father, Lance Corporal McVey were also recognized and given the chance to throw the first pitch at the OKC game. Like his dad, Rayden strives to be respectful and helpful to those in his family and community. Rayden’s siblings Asher and Malia are also Folds of Honor scholarship recipients.
