Autobell® Car Wash Customers Can Brighten the Lives of Critically ill Children during Make-A-Wish Fundraiser


From Monday, June 19, through Sunday, July 2, 2023, Autobell Car Wash customers can help brighten the lives of critically ill children while giving their own cars a shine, as the company will donate $1 from every sale of its Rain Repellent Special wash during that time to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Each year, through donor contributions, partnerships, and volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants more than 15,000 wishes to children with critical illnesses. These life-changing experiences renew hope, lift spirits, and bolster strength for the kids and their families, while uniting neighbors, friends, and entire communities in making dreams come true.

“By granting the fantastic wishes of children battling critical conditions, Make-A-Wish also relieves families’ traumatic stress and provides physical and emotional benefits that can give children better health outcomes and increase their chances for survival,” said Autobell President and COO Carl Howard. “It’s amazing that our small, simple acts as donors and partners can provide that spark of much-needed hope and joy.”

The fundraiser will take place at all Autobell locations in North and South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. The washes are open daily; hours vary by location and can be found at Customers may also use the Autobell App to purchase a Rain Repellent Special wash in support of Make-A-Wish.
