Car washes raise funds for food pantries

One hundred forty-one Super Wash car washes across the nation have participated in the fifth annual food raiser fundraiser. To date for 2014, $45,061 has been raised and checks sent to respective food pantries. 

This is the fifth year for participating local car washes and Super Wash to participate in raising awareness for the need to fill food pantries during the summer months. Needs rise with school children on summer break. 

According to the Feeding America organization, $1 provides nine meals. Super Wash Inc., located in Morrison, reports the accumulative total raised during the last 5 years is $261,131, equating to 2.3 million meals. 

Many thanks to the participating people who washed their vehicles. If your not-for-profit organization would like to be considered to be a part of this effort, please contact Super Wash Inc. 

Note to readers – Mary Black owns two Super Wash car washes in Rock Falls and is co-owner of Super Wash Inc.
