Columbus, Ohio, June 16, 2022 — Green Clean Auto Express Wash proudly announces the donation of $5,237.69 to two non-profit organizations in the Hampton roads area. The donations were collected from Green Clean Express Auto Wash customers at the company’s 10th and 11th Virginia-Based Grand Opening held this June at 2825 Godwin Blvd, Suffolk, and 3401 N Military Hwy, Norfolk, respectively. $2,607.97 was donated to Suffolk Youth Athletic Association, to help further their mission of operating, conducting, and maintaining athletic programs for the youth of Suffolk and the surrounding areas, and $2,629.72 was donated to Tidewater Arts Outreach, to help further their mission of bringing joy to the elderly living in isolating circumstances through creative engagement with the arts.
During each Grand Opening, Green Clean Express Auto Wash offered a free signature “Clean Extreme” car wash ($20 value) to every customer in exchange for a monetary donation to Suffolk Youth Athletic Association or Tidewater Arts Outreach. Green Clean Express Auto Wash also offered discounted retail gift cards with all proceeds donated back to each respective non-profit organization. Throughout the Grand Opening period, Green Clean Express Auto Wash gave away more than 2,000 free car washes at a retail value of more than $40,000.
“As we continue to expand our Green Clean brand to the Hampton Roads market and beyond, we wanted to utilize our Free Wash Week to highlight and raise money for two local organizations that greatly impact these communities that we are so proud to be a part of,” said Shawn Everett, Green Clean founder. “Both the Suffolk Youth Athletic Association and Tidewater Arts Outreach work tirelessly to bring joy to two demographics that are sometimes overlooked: children and the elderly. We are proud of the monetary support we are able to provide and look forward to getting to see the lives that are changed through each of these amazing organizations!”

About Tidewater Arts Outreach:
Tidewater Arts Outreach was founded in 2004 out of an abundance of enthusiasm, a passion for sharing music, a love of people, and a desire to convene members of Tidewater’s creative class. TAO brings the healing power of the arts to older adults and those prone to isolating circumstances. It is estimated that one third of adult Americans are affected by loneliness (feeling alone, social isolation, living alone) and this loneliness can increase mortality rates. To combat this, TAO provides Art Outreach Programs, which include subjects such as music, visual arts, performing arts, poetry and literary arts. All art programs are free of cost for participants.
