Members of National Charity League, Inc., Star Chapter’s Senior Class will host a car wash on Sunday, October 23, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., to raise funds for Camp Hope and the PTSD Foundation of America. The car wash will take place in the Katy Orthodontics parking lot (Spring Green near Cinco Ranch; just south of CVS). Members from the Class of 2017 will wash cars in exchange for donations to Camp Hope, which offers interim housing and other services to Wounded Warriors, veterans and their families suffering from combat-related PTSD.
Founded in 2012, Camp Hope is located in northwest Houston. It serves veterans from around the country in a structured 90-day recovery program with certified combat trauma counselors, mentor groups and small group activities. It also offers veterans assistance with job placement, transportation and coordination of benefits from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
