FLORENCE, KY — Thanks to the generous support of the community, Mike’s Carwash will be donating $6,127 to the 101st Airborne Division, 2nd Brigade 502nd Airborne Infantry Unit, according to a press release.
The May 9 story stated that the money was raised during Mike’s Carwash Grand Opening/Charity Event where customers received free “Works wash,” but were given the opportunity to donate to the 101st instead. Nearly 2600 washes were provided over the weekend.
The donated money will be used to offset costs for active members of the 101st on their way home to Florence. They will be honored in Florence’s Memorial Day parade.
“These funds will be put to good use to help with lodging, meals, and other expenses for the soldiers. We have a very generous community, and we thank them and Mike’s Carwash for the commitment to America’s military personnel,” said Florence mayor Diane E. Whalen.
