INDIANAPOLIS (July 30, 2020) – Crew Carwash, an Indiana based family business, recently partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters for its eleventh annual Crew for Kids fundraiser.
As part of its Crew for Kids fundraiser, Crew offered FREE FastWax with the purchase of any wash and a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event took place from Friday, July 24, to Sunday, July 26, at all 33 locations.
With the help of the community, Crew for Kids raised $72,166 in total for Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across Indiana. In total, the company has raised more than $1,000,000 for the nonprofit since its inaugural Crew for Kids fundraiser in 2010.
With the funds raised, Big Brothers Big Sisters will be able to create more than 30 new matches this year in the communities they serve. Since 2010, more than 500 “Littles” have benefited from a mentor because of the Crew for Kids event.
“We are so excited for another successful Crew for Kids event with Crew Carwash,” said Darcey Palmer-Shultz, CEO of BBBS of Central Indiana. “Their long-standing support, especially during these unprecedented times, makes it possible for us to provide our mentoring services to more kids in Central Indiana. We are so grateful for Crew Carwash and their customers. There is no doubt that this amazing support will help us reach more kids this year than we could have otherwise.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization that matches kids with caring adult mentors to help support them and empower them to reach their full potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters will use this money to create one-to-one mentoring relationships between “Bigs” and “Littles” in the community.
Funds raised 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 so happy to support their mission to create positive relationships through 1-to-1 mentoring” said Sally Grant, executive vice president of Crew Carwash. “We’ve been able to see first-hand what an impact the organization has on the youth in our community.”
