To the editor: I wanted to give the community an update about the carwash I organized to raise money for the Toledo Area Humane Society.

We managed to raise $261 even though it was a little rainy. We had to end a little bit early, due to the weather, but I feel we did pretty well.

I appreciated everyone’s dedication to stand out in the rain for four hours. My friends and parents were so devoted to make as much money as possible to give to the animals at the Toledo Area Humane Society.

When I went to the Humane Society to deliver the money we raised, I felt so sad for the animals. Although they are cared for very well, they really need a good home. I am now planning to have a yearly car wash for the animals. All of my friends are already hoping for dry and hot weather for next year’s car wash.

I wanted to say thank you to The Press for publicizing my event, my friends, my parents, Ralphie’s on Navarre Avenue and all my customers.

Without your support, my fundraiser would not have been a success.
