Carwashes will aid food bank

The Spokesman-Review

Members of Second Harvest Food Bank’s VolunTeen Board will hold three Hunger Challenge carwashes on Saturday.

Carwashes will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the North Side at the Shell gas station at Hawthorne and Division; in the Valley at Petco at Sullivan and East Sprague; and on the South Hill in the dentist office parking lot at 29th and Southeast Boulevard.

For a minimum donation of five cans of food or $5, you can have your car washed and dried.

Last year Second Harvest raised more than $70,000 and nearly 40,000 pounds of food toward the challenge. All proceeds help provide food and meals for thousands of local residents.

Second Harvest’s VolunTeen Board is made up of students from area high schools who want to fight hunger while learning leadership and teamwork skills.
