This summer, a group of Hunterdon County children wanted to make a difference and give back to their community. Shiven Bansal, Saanvi Bansal, Myra Panthri, Aayan Panthri and Ajay Patel organized a neighborhood car wash on July 25.
Forty neighbors lined the street to get their cars washed and support their cause. The group also sold snacks and food.
“We wanted to do something to support Hunterdon Medical Center and decided to hold a car wash at our house,” said Shiven Bansal. “We created flyers and distributed them throughout our neighborhood. Our parents helped to make sure we had the right supplies, but we did all the work.”
The car wash raised $1,045, with proceeds donated directly to Hunterdon Medical Center. This is the third car wash fundraiser the children organized, raising nearly $3,000 for Hunterdon Medical Center to date.
