$42,550 Raised for local food pantries by Super Wash(R) car washes

June 27, 2011 // Franchising.com // Morrison, IL – For the entire month of May, select Super Wash® car washes hosted a FoodRaiser to raise money for local food pantries. $42,550 was collectively raised with an average donation of $250.00 made to each participating food pantry. All of the money raised will stay in the local community to benefit local families.

Bob Black, Co-Founder and CEO of Super Wash, Inc. remarked, "So many really wonderful people and hard-working families are struggling right now through no fault of their own. I began my career as a high school biology teacher, so it is particularly hard for me to grasp how many kids are going hungry, especially during the summer when school is out. We are so pleased to be able to make a positive difference in some small way through our FoodRaiser."

On their website, Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity, states, "For every $1.00 donated Feeding America can provide 7 meals to men, women and children facing hunger in our country." While food procurement and distribution challenges alter the number of meals, or pounds of food, that a $1.00 donation can provide in different parts of the country, it is notable that in Omaha, NE $1.00 donated to a local food pantry can buy $9.00 worth of food and in northeast Indiana $1.00 can buy 5.5 pounds of food.

Founded by Bob and Mary Black in 1976, Super Wash is the nation's largest car wash franchisor/operator with 305 locations in twenty-one states. Visit www.superwash.com to find the Super Wash closest to you.
