PLANO, Texas, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ZIPS Car Wash (www.zipscarwash.com) is launching a new partnership with Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit serving America's military families. From November 1-11, Zips seeks to raise $10,000 to support Operation Homefront's mission to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they've worked so hard to protect.
For every person who enters to win ZIPS America's Dirtiest Car Sweepstakes (enter now https://swee.ps/llIsbBvoa) with the Grand Prize trip to America's Cleanest City: Honolulu, Hawaii, a $1 donation will be made to Operation Homefront, up to $10,000. To culminate the fundraiser, ZIPS will be offering FREE washes to all Veterans and Active Military on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, at all 220 ZIPS Car Wash locations with wash code 1112.
"Our military families have earned our utmost respect for all that they have done for all of us," said Jill Eskin-Smith, Vice President of Corporate and Foundation Partnerships. "This Veterans Day, we are proud to join ZIPS Car Wash to provide Americans with a tangible way to show our gratitude to our military and veteran families for their dedicated service."
For nearly 20 years, Operation Homefront has provided programs that offer relief (through Critical Financial Assistance and transitional housing programs), resiliency (through permanent housing and caregiver support services) and recurring family support programs and services throughout the year. To date, Operation Homefront has fulfilled more than 48,000 requests for assistance totaling more than $32 million.
"We're excited to kick off ZIPS new military program with this Operation Homefront partnership and feel it's one way of honoring the sacrifices that are made 365-days a year by military men and women and their families," said Gene Dinkens, CEO, ZIPS Car Wash. "While ZIPS has always implemented military support into our operations, in 2021, we've focused on encompassing the entire veteran, first responder and military family communities with focused outreach programs. ZIPS is honored to serve those who have served," he added.
