THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered, had their car washed, or gave a donation on Sunday, August 12th! Our Charity Car Wash was a SUCCESS! God was gracious and held off the rain, allowing us to raise $275.00, which was used to purchase school supplies to donate to The Salvation Army's Back to School Event - and we had a lot of fun while doing it! Special Thanks to Madle's Ace Hardware on Lanark Rd., who donated all of the supplies needed to wash the cars. Accolades are also due to the Zientara and Lanning-O'Donnell families for assisting with the event, as well as Fr. Buckley for graciously hosting us in his driveway, letting us use his hose (essential!), and providing lunch for the volunteer crew.
(See that picture? So far, we have filled 8 backpacks full of school supplies - and we still have some shopping to do!)
About the Charity - The Salvation Army's Back to School Event is a day in which children in grades 1 through 12 are given free school supplies in an effort to promote education. Donated supplies such as backpacks, calculators, notebooks, pencils, pencil cases, folders, etc. are needed to make this event a success. Now in its 14th year, this annual event will be held on August 23rd in Allentown.
