HUGE THANK YOU to Ashleigh Ross for donating 10 car washes to Harbor House whose mission is to assist women escaping domestic violence. The tag line for the solar project is See Beyond because I want this to be more than just solar panels on a school. If you live outside the Wichita area and want to help Harbor House or St Anthony Family Shelter that assists families in need, or a disabled veteran, just go to Charliescarwash.com and buy an eGift. Even if it's just ONE $8 car wash! Buy it and then forward the electronic receipt to me at sbergkamp@usd266.com and tell me who should receive the car wash.
