CARSTAR Ready to Raise Support for Cystic Fibrosis

During September, CARSTAR collision repair facilities will hold hold various fundraisers benefiting cystic fibrosis.

CARSTAR announced that its collision repair facilities across North America teams are getting ready for the annual CARSTAR Shine Month to raise funds and awareness for its charitable cause, cystic fibrosis (CF).

During September, CARSTAR collision repair facilities will hold “Soaps It Up” car washes at their locations, participate in fundraising walks, donate their time to community needs and contribute gift cards to local CF families. Participating CARSTAR locations include:

  • CARSTAR Manassas Collision in Manassas Park, Va.
  • CARSTAR Ken’s North in Dalton, Ga.
  • CARSTAR Dalton South in Dalton, Ga.
  • CARSTAR Tamco Collision in Norwood, Pa.
  • CARSTAR Jordan Road in Centennial, Colo.
  • CARSTAR Alan Conner Collision Center in Henrico, Va.
  • C & H CARSTAR in Fairborn, Ohio
  • CARSTAR Maryville in Maryville, Ill.

“We want to see folks get back on the road and getting back to their lives, while we want to help make sure their car looks good and support a great cause,” said Darah Scott, manager of CARSTAR Manassas Collision. “It’s our first year to be involved in the ‘Soaps It Up’ Car Wash, and it’s a great way to give back to our community each year.”

Every year, CARSTAR locations from across North America celebrate Shine Month, where CARSTAR raises valuable funds and awareness for CF. Stores host a variety of events at their facilities to help raise money and participate in other local initiatives. Whether it’s Great Strides in the U.S., the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History in Canada or the Soaps It Up Carwash, CARSTAR is committed to helping both Cystic Fibrosis Canada and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation change the meaning of CF to cure found.

CARSTAR began fundraising for CF in Canada over 20 years ago, when a franchise partner’s granddaughter received a CF diagnosis. Since then, the CARSTAR commitment to its charity of choice has only grown, as have the funds raised. Passing the $4 million threshold for funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in 2019, CARSTAR looks to continue accelerating its fundraising momentum in the U.S. and Canada.
