Pay It Forward Paul’s Car Wash

October 19, 2022

Make your next wash a hug for your car and your community! Pay it forward with Paul’s Car Wash. We are entering our 4th Year supporting Paul’s Car Wash for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Arizona and look forward to making it the best year yet. 

What is Paul’s Car Wash?

Paul’s Car Wash is a week-long televised celebration of the Big Brothers Big Sisters community. Hosted by Arizona’s Family Weather Anchor & Community Ambassador, Paul Horton, corporate and community volunteers wash hundreds of cars throughout the week. Now in its 15th year, the event has grown to include live entertainment each night and celebrity guest appearances, all in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Arizona’s one-to-one mentoring programs.

What is the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program?

Our one-to-one mentoring relationships support the critical social and emotional development needed to help build resilience and promote the mental health and well-being of thousands of children we serve across America. Now more than ever, Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across the country are stepping up to find innovative ways in serving our communities to #KeepKidsConnected.

Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Paul’s Car Wash gives you the opportunity to support your community and get your car squeaky clean in the process. There are over 40 participating locations from California to Texas where you can get your car washed and give back to the community at the same time. On location, you can contribute by purchasing a wash where you’ll have the opportunity to donate directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters, by selecting “Paul’s Car Wash” at any Super Star Car Wash location. You can also help out by making a secure donation online or volunteering to mentor one of the 200 children on the Big Brothers Big Sisters Arizona waiting list.

Join Super Star Car Wash along with over a dozen different community sponsors to help raise funds for our local Big Brothers and Big Sisters chapter. With over $300,000 in donations raised in previous years, we were able to help the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Arizona break ground on the Devin Booker Pavilion at their new building, which will serve as a hub for the youth in their program to receive peer-to-peer mentoring. Every year our involvement and donations have grown because we believe in coming together to build a better community and we’re here to make sure everyone leaves feeling super. With the help of our customers through donations and a dedicated wash we expect this year to be our best year ever!!!
