FRANKLIN, Tenn. — MILES Auto Spa announced its partnership with Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels to provide more food to senior citizens who are homebound throughout the holiday season, according to a press release.

Referred to as MILES for Meals on Wheels, the partnership enables MILES Auto Wash and MILES Express customers to make a donation to the organization for an entire meal, a slice of pie or a contribution of their choice throughout the month of December, stated the release.

In December, 100 percent of all customer donations will be contributed to the Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels, continued the release, and will be matched in various contests and drawings that will allow those who contributed to be awarded gift cards for services at MILES locations, including one award of unlimited free carwashes for one year.

MILES Auto Spa and MILES Express are also offering free carwashes to any Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels drivers who donate their time and vehicles to the organization, reported the release.

“Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels serves many seniors in need throughout our community, and we are humbled to work with this great organization,” said Miles Johnson, founder of MILES Auto Spa, in the release. “Mobility is important to MILES customers — and yet, it is what all homebound people lack — so this partnership with Meals on Wheels is a natural fit for us, and we hope to help feed those in need during this holiday season and beyond.”

The Mid-Cumberland Meals on Wheels serves more than 300,000 meals to senior citizens in the community each year, added the release.

“Our volunteers drive over 350,000 miles each year to deliver meals to seniors in Middle Tennessee,” said Sharon McDaniel, community engagement manager of Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels, in the release. “This partnership with MILES Auto Spa and MILES Express allows us to continue serving many seniors in need throughout Middle Tennessee and thank our volunteers for providing invaluable service to those seniors.”

The partnership also celebrates the opening of the carwash’s second location, MILES Express on Mallory Station road in Franklin, informed the release, which unlike many express wash models, provides advanced wash services, on-site sales and available hand drying and touch ups.

The new concept was unveiled this past September when the former AutoWash Express was acquired and converted into a MILES Express, noted the release, and a grand opening of the new wash will be held Dec. 15 with the Williamson County Chamber.
