Industry continues to show strong military support

CHICAGO — Participating carwashes will offer military veterans and active-duty personnel free carwashes in thanks for their service.

CHICAGO — Grace for Vets recently announced that it currently has over 3,000 carwashes from four countries participating in the one-day event scheduled for November 11, benefiting military members, according to a press release.

Participating carwashes will offer military veterans and active-duty personnel free carwashes in thanks for their service, added the release.

Grace for Vets was started in 2004 by Mike Mountz, formerly an operator in Pennsylvania, and it has grown each year since its inception.

In 2014, continued the release, over 2,800 carwashes gave away 233,000 free washes to those who have served their country in the military and the organization is hoping to surpass a quarter of a million free washes with this year’s event.

The International Carwash Association (ICA) took over the operational management of Grace for Vets this year following the retirement of Mountz from the carwash industry.

The program remains open to all carwashes worldwide and does not require ICA membership, noted the release. Operators can join online simply by visiting the Grace for Vets website,
