Drivers are encouraged to have their cars washed early next week and support the Canadian Red Cross’s relief efforts for the emerging famine in the Horn of Africa.
A car-wash fundraiser – organized by iFund Lending with the support of Surrey Board of Trade – is to be held rain or shine Aug. 15, 2-5 p.m. in the iFund building parking lot, 3237 King George Blvd.
The Canadian government has pledged to match all individual donations to the famine-relief campaign until Sept. 16. In addition, iFund has pledged to match all initial donations up to a total of $2,500.
Tax receipts will be provided for any donation over $20.
