Express Wash Concepts Air Freshener Campaign Raises $35,000 for Local Non-Profits

Columbus, Ohio, April 13, 2021—  Express Wash Concepts (EWC) today announced the donation of $35,069 to 33 Ohio-based non-profits. The donations were collected as part of EWC’s Q1 Air Freshener Campaign in which the Company offered for sale $1 special edition air fresheners, with 100% of collected proceeds donated back to local non-profits.

Non-profit partners were selected by Team Members at each location, with the only requirement being the non-profit must directly impact community members within that wash’s location. During the month-long campaign, Moo Moo Express Car Wash, Flying Ace Express Car Wash, Clean Express Auto Wash and Meyers Auto Wash customers had the option to purchase the campaign air fresheners via an onsite Team Member or at the wash payment kiosk. As an added incentive, customers could scan a QR code on the back of the air freshener to enter for a chance to win Unlimited Washes for a Year.

“Shifting our non-profit partner selection to each individual location proved to be extremely impactful, as we raised the largest total ever from a single donation campaign,” said John Roush, Express Wash Concepts Chief Executive Officer. “We had each location set a projected goal, which is what we used to order inventory, and by the end of the campaign every location surpassed that goal. Some sites within just the first few days of the campaign.”

Participating non-profit partners included the following: Alzheimer’s Association, Animal Friends Humane Society, Brigid’s Path, Children’s Hunger Alliance, Clintonville/Beechwold Community Resources Center, Donate Life, Family Mentor Foundation, For Love of Children, Franklin County Animal Shelter, Gahanna Residents in Need, Gigi’s Shelter for Dogs, Girls & Boys Club of Toledo, Good Works Farm, Grove City Food Pantry, Foundation Dinners, HEART Food Pantry, Inc., House of Bread, Little Hercules Foundation, Mid-Ohio Food Collective, My Very Own Blanket, Ohio’s Hospice Of Dayton, Save a Warrior Foundation, Sisca, Southside Stay, St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter of Licking County, The Center for Families and Children, The City Mission/Crossroads Men’s Crisis Center, The Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Union County Humane Society, The Toledo Humane Society, W.A.G.S 4 Kids and Westerville Area Resource Ministry.

One “Free Washes for a Year” winner was selected and announced per brand as follows: Clean Express Auto Wash: Daniel Daily, Flying Ace Express Car Wash: Leah Garver, Meyers Auto Wash: Santiago Lizcano, and Moo Moo Express Car Wash: Mary Westinghouse.
