Today Moo Moo Express Car Wash announced the donation of $6,945 to the Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio’s Operation Backpack Campaign. Monetary donations were collected at all 13 Central Ohio Moo locations August 10-12, 2018, and customers donating $5 received a coupon for a free “Whole Plus” car wash their next visit, a $13 value.

“Through the hard work and dedication of our staff and the extreme generosity of our customers, we were able to more than triple last year’s Operation Backpack Campaign donation,” said John Roush, Chief Executive Officer of Express Wash Concepts and Founding Partner of Moo Moo Express Car Wash. “We are thrilled to have played a role in helping area at-risk children return to school prepared and hopefully with the confidence needed to succeed.”

Operation Backpack provides school supplies and backpacks to thousands of homeless children. Nationwide, the average cost to fill a backpack is $87— an expense very few families living in shelters can afford. These children face many challenges and tremendous stigmatization – as a result, less than 25% graduate from high school. This year in Central Ohio, more than 4,100 children received donated backpacks and school supplies through Operation Backpack as they headed back to the classroom.

“We are grateful to Moo Moo Express and its customers for helping put brand new backpacks filled with school supplies in the hands of more kids this year than ever before. With smiles on their faces, kids experiencing homelessness returned to the classroom with confidence and ready to learn,” said Debbie Gillum, Marketing and Digital Communications Specialist for Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio.

Moo Moo Express is Central Ohio’s leader in the high-end, express car wash market. The Moo operates in the following Central Ohio neighborhoods: Clintonville, Dublin, Gahanna, Grandview, Grove City, Heath, Hilliard, Lancaster, Marysville, Pickerington, Polaris, Reynoldsburg and Upper Arlington. The company’s 14th location is scheduled to open late September, 2018 in Bexley, with a 15th location in Northland to open in late 2018.
