RIO Car Wash to Donate 100% of Car Wash Sales to Empower House
Press Release

The event locations include the Fredericksburg wash at 70 Sebring Drive and the Massaponax wash at 10050 Jefferson Davis Highway.  During the event, Rio Car Wash will donate 100% of all car wash sales to the not-for-profit organization Empower House.  Prize giveaways for those registering will include free car washes. There is no cost involved to participate other than the car wash service the customer chooses. Washes start at just $5.00 at the Stafford location and $4.00 at the Massaponax location.

Rio Car Wash has donated over $18,000 to Empower House since its first event in 2014. “We partner with Empower House because we believe in the mission of the organization and the vital role it plays in our community,” said Jeff Small, owner of Rio Car Wash. “This annual event is a fantastic way for our customers to learn about Empower House and know that their car wash dollars are going to benefit a worthy cause.  It is also a great opportunity for Rio Car Wash and its employees to help support the efforts of the organization.”

Since 1978 Empower House has provided confidential domestic violence assistance in the city of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, and Caroline. These services include a free and confidential 24-hour hotline, a temporary emergency shelter, information, referrals, and advocacy.

About Rio Car Wash

Rio Car Wash began with a single location in 1995. Since that time Rio has grown to six locations throughout Virginia, most recently, with the addition of the two newest locations in Virginia Beach. All locations feature state-of-the-art, all soft cloth equipment and premium brand automotive car care products. 

Rio Car Wash is an exterior express car wash, offering six different wash packages with free vacuums included. The wash seeks to minimize its impact on the environment by using reclaimed, treated and recycled water and safe, biodegradable, phosphate-free wash solutions. The company is committed to giving back to the community through charitable support for local organizations.
