Owens Community College Student Government Offers Spring Car Wash Fundraising Event, April 16

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Area residents interested in transforming their dirty vehicles into spotless masterpieces are encouraged to visit the Owens Community College Toledo-area Campus as Student Government, armed with buckets of suds, will host a Spring Car Wash Fundraising Event on Tuesday, April 16. Proceeds raised from the car wash will benefit the construction of a Multipurpose Room at the Brad Reddick School in Savanette, Haiti.

The Spring Car Wash Fundraising Event will occur in the north entrance parking lot of the Student Health and Activities Center on the Toledo-area Campus. Individuals will have the opportunity to drive up to the car wash from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Freewill donations will be accepted at the conclusion of each individual car wash. Owens is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.

The Brad Reddick School was established in 2006 as a result of generous community outreach support through Missions International of America in Perrysburg and provides educational opportunities for over 300 children. The educational facility is currently in the process of constructing a Multipurpose Room, which will be used for computer technology education upon building completion.

The College’s Student Government is comprised of individuals who serve as the student body’s voice on the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses. Balancing their time between school and work, Student Government members are constantly initiating new projects and events that meet the needs and interests of Owens’ student body and the surrounding communities.
