Carwash Proceeds To Help Outsider
A group of commission volunteers were joined by a handful of homeless people as they washed cars at Steve's Unocal 76 gas station from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to raise funds to turn this newsletter into a self-sufficient product.
The car wash was a way for the homeless to do something positive for themselves...and the volunteers had a great time. Lance Winslow, from the Car Wash Guys in Thousand Oaks, said, "I am always willing to help other for a good cause." Lance showed up to donate his equipment and his car washing expertise. The other volunteers, Bill, Roberta, Genny, John and Ken, were catching the attention of the passing cars to persuade them to come in and get their cars washed. Everyone who volunteered deserve recognition for devoting all their time and effort to make the carwash a success.
This column is for the people of Ventura County to express their gratitude to those who deserve a thank you. If you would like to thank someone, write to the address on the back of the newsletter and we will print it! Thank you for joining in our vision to stop homelessness.
