We anticipate that we will see upwards of 600 to 700 cars at each location so the ability to make a substantial contribution to this great organization is very real.” Radio stations will be on hand broadcasting live from each location and each customer will have a chance to register for prizes, including free months of car washes.
New Life For Youth is a residential non-profit training center that provides help and hope to youth and young adults with life-controlling issues. “44 years ago my father and mother, Victor and Cameron Torres, began taking youth off of the street and bringing them into our home,” explains Rosalind Rivera, Executive Director of New Life for Youth. “This provided them hope and a place where they could learn to live without addiction. Today, over 10,000 men and 3,000 women have graduated from the program, transforming themselves into healthy, productive, contributing members of our society. In addition, our food bank supplies over 300,000 meals a year in the community. We are extremely grateful to Jeff Small and the entire Rio Car Wash team for helping us bring hope to the lives of youth in our city.”
