UPDATE (10/28): An announcement from co-president Sophie Delfeus of Operation Smile: due to inclement weather "As of now, we have officially called off the car wash. We plan to reschedule our car wash for early spring. Please check back soon because we have a bake sale at the Villiage Market to look forward to next!"
Dirty Car? Let us clean it up! Have your car washed while also helping the children smile!
This Sunday, October 28th, members of the Wilton High School club "Operation Smile" will be stationed at the "Operation Smile" carwash, which will be located at the Wilton Congregational Church from 12:30pm until 5:30pm (see blog for additional information).
"Operation Smile" is a children's charity, founded to treat underprivileged children and young adults suffering from an orofacial cleft. Because of this major health concern, children affected are often left unable to eat, speak, and, most importantly, smile. In addition, because of their appearance and inability to socialize, many times those affected are shunned from society. However, because of the free facial reconstruction surgeries provided by Operation Smile, children are given something so crucial, yet something so many take for granted these days: the gift of a smile.
With the low cost of only $240 per facial reconstruction surgery, every penny truly does count!
Please come out and show your support, and join us in raising awareness about "Operation Smile's" important mission!
Make sure to stay connected, spread the word about our carwash, and look for updates concerning our club's upcoming fundraisers and events on our brand new WHS Operation Smile Blog!
