This past July we held a car wash / bake sale to raise $ for Christmas Cheer! Of course this was held at ArcLight Brewing in Watervliet and happened to be the same weekend the Watervliet HS cheerleaders were also having a car wash. Regardless we did raise $350 that afternoon and after another $50 donation our funds totaled $400.
Below you can see the results of our Christmas Cheer. On Dec. 14, two weeks before Christmas we purchased 20 gift cards each valued at $20. We got these from a local Meijer and Wal-Mart stores. We then went through each store and handed a gift card to people doing their Christmas shopping that seemed like they could use a little extra help. All were very appreciative and we were met with more than a few tears. These are some pictures of those we helped by giving back to our community.
Now this is how we 'Party with a Purpose'. On car wash day it was a very hot, humid July afternoon and we were on an asphalt parking lot. But it was all worth it when we presented these families with an extra $20 to help them through the Christmas Season! We appreciate the support of ArcLight Brewing, and the Benton Harbor, MI Meijer and Wal-Mart stores.
