The Carihi Interact club will be holding a car wash at the downtown fire-hall Saturday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The Carihi Interact club will be holding a car wash at the downtown fire-hall Saturday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The club, which is associated with the noon hour Rotary club, is raising funds to sponsor a child from the Philippines named Angelica Maguilao who they are going to support throughout her schooling years.

Maguilao is 10 years old and in Grade 4. She comes from a poor family as do all the children chosen for support.

Her father works as a security guard earning a minimum wage of 8,000 pesos or approximately $180 Canadian per month. She has two younger siblings and the family lives in a one room house, fetching water from a community tap.

Their diet consists of rice supplemented with snails and edible herbs gathered from the forest and river. She is on the honour role at school and dreams of becoming a teacher.

The funds will boost Angelica and her family as they face the difficulties of living in the developing world.

The students will also be having a bake sale at the same location, so as your car is breaking out its shine you can enjoy the wonderful baked goods that will be available.

So come on down and get your vehicle looking it’s best for summer while supporting a great international cause.

For further information, contact the Carihi Interact Club at interact_carihi@hotmail.ca.
