Greensboro, NC (September 17, 2020) – Giving back to the communities they call home is a core value for Tidal Wave Auto Spa. Tidal Wave’s 12th Annual Charity Day will be held Friday, September 18, 2020 and will benefit United Way of Greater Greensboro.

“We chose to focus our 12th annual Charity Day on United Way of Greater Greensboro for the third year in a row because we know their efforts to end poverty are working. We are looking forward to another successful year raising dollars and awareness for United Way,” said Jennifer Rogers, Marketing Manager for Tidal Wave Auto Spa.

United Way of Greater Greensboro is kicking off its 98th annual campaign this month. Prior to the pandemic, there were more than 57,000 people in greater Greensboro living in poverty, making community member support more important than ever before.

Tidal Wave donates proceeds from all sales made each Charity Day to a charity or non-profit in the local community. Across all its locations in the Midwest and Southeast, a total of $500,000 has been raised from Charity Day donations alone.

END POVERTY: United Way of Greater Greensboro is leading a local movement to END poverty. We create partnerships and initiatives that work together to end poverty. More than 57,000 people are living in poverty in the greater Greensboro area. In Greensboro alone, one out of every four children, lives in poverty. With the community’s support, we’re connecting people to opportunities we all deserve like housing, jobs, education and healthcare. Our holistic approach to ending poverty is working and we have the outcomes to prove it. The federal government defines poverty as a family of four earning $24,600 per year. According to local self-sufficiency standards, many four-member households need to earn around $60,000 to meet basic needs without subsidized assistance. Local impact for 98 years and counting
