Muirlands students wash cars for a reason

Eighth graders from Muirlands Middle School washed cars on Saturday to raise money for the East Coast Expedition scholarship fund.

Towels, hoses and teamwork make for fun and fundraising.

The hard working students take a break for a photo.

About 140 students will make the nine-day trek to visit Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. this coming spring and every little bit helps to cover some of the cost for students who may need financial assistance.

If you would like to contribute, donations can be made to Muirlands Middle School. They’ll be having another car wash in the new year.
