Mike's Carwash

Mike’s Carwash raised nearly $15,000 for veterans and first responders suffering from PTSD, TBI and other injuries.

To commemorate Veterans Day on Nov. 11, Mike’s Carwash held a day-long fundraising event to support Project Hero. Mike’s gave a free Basic Wash to all veterans and active military personnel, with an option to upgrade to an Ultimate Wash for $5.

All proceeds from the $5 upgrade were donated to Project Hero, which supports veterans and first responders affected by PTSD, TBI and injury.

In addition, Mike’s offered its Ultimate Wash to the general public for $15, with $1 donated to Project Hero for every Ultimate Wash sold.

In all, more than $14,000 was raised during the Veterans Day fundraiser. “Our Project Hero fundraiser is always a special event for everyone at Mike’s,” said Mike Dahm, president of Mike’s Carwash, in an announcement. “We’re tremendously grateful to our customers for supporting those who have served, and continue to serve, our country, as well as the courageous first responders in our local communities.”

Founded in 2008, Project Hero is a groundbreaking national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans and first responders affected by PTSD, TBI and injury achieve rehabilitation, recovery, and resilience in their daily lives and increasing awareness to combat the national mental health emergency posed by PTSD and TBI.
