Carwash to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters throughout the state for fundraising event
INDIANAPOLIS (June 28, 2019) – Crew Carwash, an Indiana based family business, is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters for its tenth annual Crew for Kids fundraiser.
“For over 70 years, Crew Carwash has been giving back to our local communities because of all they have given to us,” said Bill Dahm, CEO of Crew Carwash. “We are looking forward to once again partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters to support the children of Indiana.”
As part of its Crew for Kids fundraiser, Crew will donate 50 percent of all Ultimate washes, a $20 value, to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event will take place on Saturday, August 3 at all 32 locations. Crew will also be accepting credit and cash donations at all locations and will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Funds raised will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies that serve markets in which Crew has locations. The agencies to receive the proceeds from this fundraiser include: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette, Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wabash Valley and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bartholomew County.
“We are excited for our 10th Crew for Kids event with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Sally Grant, executive vice president of Crew Carwash. “We are so happy to support their mission to create positive relationships through 1-to-1 mentoring and we’ve been able to see first-hand what an impact the organization has on the youth in our community.”
Last year, Crew raised more than $94,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In total, the company has raised nearly $500,000 for the nonprofit since its inaugural Crew for Kids fundraiser in 2010.
“Crew Carwash is a valued partner and, simply put, we have been able to reach more kids over the last 10 years thanks to their support through the Crew for Kids event,” said Darcey Palmer-Shultz, CEO of BBBS of Central Indiana. “This is a special day for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and we couldn’t do it without all of the Crew Carwash customers who come out to support local kids.”
