Carwash to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters throughout the state for fundraising event

INDIANAPOLIS (July 6, 2020)Crew Carwash, an Indiana based family business, is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters for its eleventh 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 partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to support the children of Indiana.”

As part of its Crew for Kids fundraiser, Crew will be giving away FREE FastWax with the purchase of any wash and a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event will take place from Friday, July 24, to Sunday, July 26, at all 33 locations. Crew will 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 look forward to our 11th 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 $120,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In total, the company has raised nearly $1,000,000 for the nonprofit since its inaugural Crew for Kids fundraiser in 2010. “We are excited for the annual Crew for Kids event because it helps us ignite the potential of more great kids every year,” said Darcey Palmer-Shultz, CEO of BBBS of Central Indiana. “We’re really proud to partner with Crew Carwash, and we’re grateful for all of the customers that decide to visit Crew Carwash and donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters this weekend. It makes a big difference, especially this year, in our ability to reach as many young people as possible.”
