Westport Wash and Wax has entered their second decade of giving back to those less fortunate in our community by holding their signature event “Good Neighbor Day.” Twelve years ago Scott Tiefenthaler and his wife Laila decided to lend their support to a local nonprofit organization that was making a difference; Homes with Hope was that organization. Again this year Westport Wash & Wax partners Scott and Craig Tiefenthaler will donate 100% of their car washing revenues on Friday, June 22nd to Homes with Hope. The funds raised will support the mission of Homes with Hope and their programs and services designed to help the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in the community.
Members of Homes with Hope’s board of directors and staff will be on hand to personally thank patrons of the carwash and to answer questions about the many ways our neighbors take care of those in need through their agency, and through the other support networks in lower Fairfield County.
Jeff Wieser, President & CEO of Homes with Hope, lauded the efforts of the Tiefenthalers: “The Tiefenthalers give to the community every day - in the “green” way their operations are set up, and in the number of organizations they support. We are honored that this 12 year tradition continues to provide a full day’s car wash receipts to Homes with Hope in an effort that has raised over $50,000 to date.”
Westport Wash & Wax is located at 791 Post Road E in Westport and is open 7 days a week. Homes with Hope is a grassroots response to the problems of homelessness and those at-risk of homelessness in the local community.
