Car wash for Chilliwack crime prevention

The public is invited to learn a little more about Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services, have some fun – and drive away in a clean car.

The public is invited to learn a little more about Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services, have some fun – and drive away in a clean car.

The volunteer organization is holding a car wash fund raiser on Saturday, June 21 in the Walmart parking lot at Eagle Landing.

There will be games, food, prizes and, of course, a car wash.

Funds raised from the event will support the many programs offered by the society.

Those programs include: Block Watch, which gives neighbours the tools and support to prevent crime in their neighbourhoods; Citizens on Patrol, which provides RCMP with additional eyes and ears on the street; Speed Watch, which reminds drivers to operate their vehicles in a safe manner; and, Crime Free Multi-Housing, which gives building managers and strata councils the education and resources they need to keep their buildings safe and secure for all residents.

Information about these programs, and how you can be involved, will be available at next Saturday’s event. It’s an opportunity to come out and support Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services, organizers say – a non-profit organization, serving Chilliwack since 1992.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
