Every month The Family Car Wash sponsors a local family or deserving charitable organization with the goal of being more involved within our community. For the month of September, we are recognizing National Blood Cancer Awareness Month and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkins Disease & Myeloma and to improve quality of life of the patients and their families. There are many forms of each and it is important to know the differences between them.
