INDIANAPOLIS (May 16, 2016) – Crew Carwash, a long-standing central Indiana carwash organization, announces today that it is donating $31,563 to Riley Children’s Foundation to help fund the recruitment of leading experts to provide mothers and babies comprehensive care at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
During its first-ever “Unlimited Hope for Riley” campaign, which ran from April 30-May 8, Crew Carwash committed to donating 50 percent of the first month’s proceeds from every purchase of an Unlimited Wash plan to Riley Children’s Foundation. Crew also accepted cash donations at all 27 locations throughout the nine-day time period.
The initiative resulted in a total of $31,563 to be donated to Riley Children’s Foundation.
“As part of our continued efforts to give back and make a difference in Indiana, we always knew we wanted to get involved with Riley Hospital,” said Sally Grant, executive vice president of Crew Carwash.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first organizations to raise funds for this important new initiative, and our team members couldn’t be more proud.”
Riley’s Maternity and Newborn Health program is a brand new initiative aimed at greatly reducing Indiana’s infant mortality rate. Indiana currently ranks 45th in the nation in infant mortality.
“We’re grateful to Crew Carwash for fully embracing this fundraising campaign for Riley Hospital for Children,” said Jim Austin, chief marketing and corporate partnerships officer for Riley Children’s Foundation. “Their efforts will positively impact the Riley Maternity and Newborn Health program as it takes shape.”
