The Eco-Friendly Charity Car Wash Program is a good way for your charity to raise funds while protecting the environment at the same time.
Traditional car-washing fundraisers held in parking lots drain to storm drains. These untreated discharges flow directly to our local creeks. This can harm wildlife and degrade the environment. Typically, these fundraisers consume significant amounts of your charity's time and energy.
The City's Eco-Friendly Charity Car Wash Program helps address these concerns by connecting charities with local car wash facilities. These businesses are plumbed to the sanitary sewer. Polluted water from car-washing events held at these facilities is sent to the City's wastewater plant and cleaned prior to discharge. This is a win-win solution for your charity, the environment, and the car wash business.
The details of each facility's program varies, but the main similarity is that your charity makes money. When you send your supporters to a participating car wash, a portion of the proceeds go back to you and your customers enjoy a professionally cleaned car. The car wash facility may have a voucher system or use your labor. It's really up to them, but you share in the benefits.
