Moo Moo Express Car Wash proudly announces the donation of $9,353.06 to Local Matters to help further their mission of building healthy communities through food education, access and advocacy. The donations were collected from Moo Moo Express customers at the company’s South High Grand Opening/Free Wash Week held January 3-12, 2020 at the 3580 South High St., Columbus, Ohio location.
During the Grand Opening, Moo Moo Express offered a free signature “Crème De La Crème VIP” car wash ($18 value) to every customer in exchange for a monetary donation to Local Matters. Moo Moo Express also offered discounted retail gift cards with all proceeds donated back to Local Matters. Throughout the Grand Opening period, Moo Moo Express gave away more than 2,300 free car washes at a retail value of more than $41,000.
“We love leveraging our Grand Openings to raise money for a local non-profit making a difference around our new wash location,” said John Roush, Moo Moo Express Car Wash Founder and Express Wash Concepts CEO. “We know that this monetary donation will go a long way in helping Local Matters further propel their impressive programming initiatives, in particular surrounding healthy nutrition education for our youngest community members.”
Local Matters builds healthy communities through food education, access, and advocacy. In 2019, Local Matters reached more than 22,000 people of all ages and backgrounds across Central Ohio with life-changing food education and access programs.
Since opening in 2009, Moo Moo Express has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars and car washes to support Central Ohio organizations including the Boys & Girls Club of Newark, Mid-Ohio Foodbank, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Volunteers of America and the Central Ohio YMCA, among others.
