PARKLAND, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Rising Tide Car Wash — which employs primarily adults with autism — is taking its “do good” mission one step further and helping victims of the Oklahoma tornados.
The Carwash is on 441, just south of the Boca/Parkland border at 7201 North State Road 7.
The high-quality Rising Tide Car Wash, a groundbreaking social enterprise in Parkland, Fla. is empowering the local community by helping others: it’s hosting a special fundraiser to aid victims of the May 20 Moore, Okla. tornado on Sunday, June 2. Rising Tide, which has a primary mission to employ adults with autism, will donate 100 percent of the profits from all car washes it performs on June 2 to Team Rubicon (TR) for aid to tornado victims. TR is the veterans organization that unites the skills of military veterans with first responders for natural disaster and humanitarian crisis relief.
Rising Tide COO Thomas D’Eri became familiar with TR through his fellowship with StartingBloc, an organization affiliated with TR which exists to educate, connect, and inspire emerging leaders to drive social innovation across sectors.
“We chose Team Rubicon as the charity to work with to help tornado victims, because they have a dual mission, just as we do at Rising Tide,” said D’Eri. “We give adults with autism opportunities to grow and develop in a workplace, while aiming to provide the premier car wash experience on the market. Team Rubicon aims to save lives, at the same time engaging veterans to find a renewed sense of purpose for their skills and experiences.”
The event runs from 8a to 7p.
