On December 18, 2015 the Allen Community Outreach, a “one stop shop” providing a seamless system of human and social services, received an unexpected visitor offering an early Christmas gift. TradeMark Car Wash, located at 1007 West McDermott in Allen, delivered a $5,000 check to help fulfill the non-profit organization’s goal of providing Christmas gifts to more than 600 Collin County youths.
TradeMark Car Wash, a full service car wash serving the area since 2004, has partnered with the Allen Community Outreach (ACO) for more than ten years. After receiving news of a continued need, business owners Tom and Kim Miller, wanted to show their appreciation and support to the organization with a surprise donation the day before volunteers would set out on a mission to purchase hundreds of children’s gifts for Christmas.
“We were overwhelmed by TradeMark Car Wash’s generosity,” said Glenda May, ACO executive director. “Their donation allowed us to reach more of the community and hopefully share some holiday cheer.”
During Christmas, the organization strives to provide each child in their program with an age appropriate, new gift in addition to their regular services provided year-round. As the Collin County area continues to grow, so does the need for social services and the funds required to successfully operate them.
“The ACO does so much for our community,” said Kim Miller, “it is truly our honor to partner with them in whatever way we can. This year, being able to hand deliver an over-sized check was a joy for us and an unforgettable experience.”
