WashforaCause.com is NECA’s alternative to “driveway” charity washes. In May, the program’s first full month of operation, 9 charities collected 430 pledges. We currently have 56 available member car wash locations. Are you one of them? The more available locations, the more attractive using this service will be for charities.
What’s in it for you?
Participation can raise the positive profile of your wash and help to win the loyalty of customers who value your contribution to the community and to preserving the environment. And, it can introduce your wash to new customers.
The program is easy to administer and responds to concerns about liability when holding live charity washes on your site.
