“As part of our continued efforts to give back to communities throughout Indiana, we are so happy to give this donation to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northwest Indiana, said Sally Grant, Executive Vice President of Crew Carwash. “This partnership not only helped raise money for this wonderful organization, but also gave us the chance to serve first-time customers in the Merrillville area and hope they become lifetime customers.”
Funds raised will benefit six local Boys and Girls Clubs in Lake County. The clubs to receive the proceeds from this fundraiser include: Cedar Lake, East Chicago Katherine House, John Will Anderson Gary, Hammond, Lake Station and Merrillville.
