With the promising possibilities of being able to drive more, now is the time to start thinking about a good-old fashioned car wash! 

Join the  Southwest Neighborhood Assembly Youth Activities Task Force (YATF) for its second car wash fundraiser on Saturday, July 10, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at Westminster Church’s parking lot (entrance at rear of church, off McKemie Place, SW). YATF is hoping that Mother Nature will be in our favor just as she was last September when we held our first-ever car wash – an amazingly beautiful day. 

This year, YATF is looking forward to doubling the net proceeds raised last year from over $450 to $1000. We also want to double the number of vehicles washed, from 15 last year to 30 or beyond. 

Benefiting the YATF’s proposed mural painting, photography, and storytelling class for SW Youth, YATF looks forward to not only raising additional funds but also bringing the community together again in a socially distanced car washing effort. It will also provide a volunteer opportunity for a host of community youth, residents, and friends, as well as create a lot of splashing fun. Vehicles are $15 each with welcomed tips. If you are pushed for time and are unable to get your vehicle washed, YATF will gladly accept generous donations again this year for a great cause.

Volunteers are needed to help ensure the success of the car wash. To volunteer, please email or call (202) 270-6390, or email or call (202) 251-1639.
