CHARLOTTE (September 7, 2021) –From Monday, September 13, through Sunday, September 26, Autobell® Car Wash will donate $1 from every sale of its Rain Repellent Special car wash to the USO to assist the organization’s support of active duty service members and their families.

The USO is the nation’s leading organization serving U.S. military members and their families throughout their time of active service.

A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to support its activities and is powered by volunteers to accomplish its mission.

“The USO offers a hospitable and relaxing gathering place that I and my family have used many times, both overseas and while traveling,” stated Sgt. Jaquell Harper, an Autobell® manager in Yorktown, VA, who has served over seven years in the U.S. Army with deployments in Croatia, Lithuania, and Poland. “It’s an often unknown and overlooked organization by the general public that continues to be very important to service members, so it’s great to see Autobell® partnering with the USO to bring exposure and support to its role.”
