Big Brothers Big Sisters Two-Day Spare Change Fundraiser

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Zanesville organization is partnering with the Bee Clean Express Wash this Friday and Saturday.

They are having a spare change fundraiser for its program and Bowl For Kids Sake event.

“This is a new community partnership. We’re really excited to work with Bee Clean and Bo and his crew here. You’ll see people stationed out at the front entrance and then as you come through to get your car washed. Of course you’ll purchase your car wash but then if you’d like to also make a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, you can do so,” BBBSZ Executive Director Katie Mainini said.

Big Brothers Big Sisters will have about three to five staff and volunteer members at each shift. They are hoping they can spread the word about the Bowl For Kids Sake event that is approaching next month and raise money for awareness. 

“We make a really big impact on our local youth and we provide in person mentoring programs to really empower our youth and help them reach their fullest potential,” Mainini said.

You can find Big Brothers Big Sisters at the Bee Clean Express on Friday from ten to four and Saturday nine to one. If you would like to donate towards the organization in an alternate way, you can visit their website at
