Mike's Carwash proudly presented a check for $12,287.31 to the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne Youth Service Bureau on Oct. 15.
The donation was a result of the proceeds from Mike's 4th Annual Wash for a Cause fundraiser held on October 7-8. Mike's pledged to donate half of all the proceeds from every Ultimate Wash sold at any Fort Wayne or Mishawaka location during the event to the YMCA of Greater Ft. Wayne Youth Service Bureau.
"We proudly support the YMCA Youth Service Bureau year after year," says Mike Dahm, president of Mike's Carwash. "Including this year's donation, we have donated over $35,000 in the past four years to the Youth Service Bureau in support of their work of changing the lives of area youth."
Since 1982, the Youth Service Bureau has provided support for troubled youth and their families. While their primary goal is to provide crisis and intervention services, they do so much more. Through advocacy, they give at-risk adolescents the tools, skills and support they need to succeed and grow into thriving adults and community members.
"We are grateful to Mike's Carwash for hosting this annual event which raises money and awareness for the free programs that are provided by the YMCA's Youth Service Bureau," says Greg Barnes, executive director of the YMCA Youth Service Bureau. "We are confident that the success of this fundraiser is due in large part to the reputation that Mike's has in the community. We are grateful for their support of the work that we do."
