“This is the 9th straight year of Wash for a Cause,” said Joe Dahm, President of Mike’s Carwash. “We have a very special place in our hearts for the YMCA Youth Service Bureau. They are doing such important work to support area youth and their families. I’m grateful to both our team members and loyal customers who helped us surpass the 2021 donation by nearly $14,000.”
