ABILENE, Texas — According to an article posted by ktxs.com, a local carwash here is trading carwash services for school supplies in order to benefit underprivileged students going back to school.
Rilow’s Auto Detail on Pine Street is currently exchanging carwashes with its customers for a donation of a backpack with school supplies, noted the article.
According to the article, this is the first time that the carwash and detail business is participating in this school supply drive, and it is hoping for a good turnout to help Abilene ISD students.
“I have been the child who walked into school with no supplies on the first day,” organizer Byron Thompson said. “That does something to a person.”
Thompson is asking people who are interested in helping out to bring school-related supplies, such as pencils, notebooks, folders, glue sticks, markers and other items that are commonly needed in the classroom.
