Rio Car Wash will donate 100 percent of car wash sales at its two Fredericksburg-area locations on Saturday to Empowerhouse.
The charity event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 70 Sebring Dr. in Fredericksburg and 10050 Jefferson Davis Hwy., in Massaponax. Prizes include free car washes.
Empowerhouse is a nonprofit organization providing confidential domestic violence assistance in the city of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, and Caroline since 1978. These services include a free and confidential 24-hour hotline, a temporary emergency shelter, information, referrals, and advocacy.
“This is our third year partnering with Empowerhouse, because we believe in the mission of the organization and its vital role in the community,” Rio Car Wash owner Jeff Small said in a news release.
