Hambletonian Auto Spa, in conjunction with thousands of other car wash locations, will provide FREE washes to veterans and current military service personnel, through the Grace for Vets FREE Wash Program, on November 11th from 8 AM – 6 PM. Hambletonian is pleased to celebrate their 15th year offering Veteran’s a FREE “Place” Full-Service Car Wash for the seven days encompassing Veteran’s Week November 8-14. “The first year we joined the Grace for Vets FREE Wash Program it rained, and we were disappointed we couldn’t show our appreciation to the many Veterans in our area. The following year we stretched it for a week and have continued since. This day is not about the car wash operators providing the FREE washes, it’s about honoring and recognizing those that have and are serving and protecting our country,” said Tim Somers, Owner. “It’s an exciting and emotional week for everyone. Our management team and staff look forward to giving back to those that have given so much.”
Grace for Vets was founded by Mike Mountz, former owner of Cloister Wash & Lube in PA in 2004. Mountz vowed to find a way to honor veterans when he served and saw first-hand amputees and the seriously wounded at the Veterans Hospital in Valley Forge, PA. Currently there are 4,666 washes registered to offer FREE washes from all 50 United States and beyond. Hundreds of thousands of military service personnel have been recognized with a FREE car wash on November 11th and over three million FREE washes have been given since it’s inception. Details on the Grace for Vets Program and all participating washes can be found at www.graceforvets.org.
