Operator trades details for food donations

COLUMBIA, MD — The most needed items are canned meats, canned vegetables and canned fruits.

COLUMBIA, MD — A full-service carwash, detailing and auto repair shop here will give away free basic carwashes on Dec. 20, virtual-strategy.com reported.

The Dec. 14 story stated that Columbia Car Wash and Detailing was encouraging its patrons to donate non-perishable food items in exchange for the free carwash. All the donations will be given to the Maryland Food Bank.

Weekend wash event held to benefit food bank

The campaign was the idea of Ryan Daggle, the shop’s owner. “We thought it was a fun way to both give back to our loyal customers and help a great local charity in the process. Just a different way we could raise awareness in the community about the great work being done at the Maryland Food Bank,” he said in the story.

The food bank said the most needed items this holiday season are canned meats, canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned dairy products and pasta.
