On Saturday, August 22nd, Simple Charity hosted a car wash at Coal Mountain Elementary School as their first event of the school year.


Simple Charity is a Christian, student-led organization in Forsyth County that has a goal of raising $100,000 to eliminate global poverty by the end of May 2016. The car wash lasted from 11 A.M. to 4 P.M. while club members, parents, and volunteers were present to help wash cars and inform people who stopped by about Simple Charity.


Noah Smith, a sophomore club member said, “The car wash was a great experience with great people by my side that resulted in great things. It’s amazing to be a part of a passionate group that helps people who cannot help themselves.”


From a day’s worth of donations, the club raised $1230.26 which will provide 508 people with clean water for life. All proceeds will go to Just One: Africa, a non-profit organization, to purchase water filters for Kenyans. All in all, a day of full smiles, soap, and sparkling cars resulted, while a club grew closer to their goal and with each other.
