Hamilton, Ohio, August 12, 2020Flying Ace Express Car Wash & Simoniz USA, Inc. today proudly announced the donation of $10,000 to Hamilton’s Caring Closet, which provides Hamilton City School District students in need with a box of clothing, coat, a pair of shoes, new underwear and socks, and basic toiletries. The check was presented to Caring Closet Executive Director Tammy Bucher Sims at the Hamilton Flying Ace Express Car Wash, located at 6560 Winford Avenue.

“When Simoniz USA’s President & CEO William Gorra approached asking for a local non-profit recommendation for their community relations donation initiative, I immediately recommended the Caring Closet,” said John Roush, Flying Ace Express Partner and Express Wash Concepts CEO. “Through Simoniz’s generosity, and a match on behalf of Express Wash Concepts/Flying Ace Express Car Wash, we feel honored to help the Caring Closet provide vital assistance during a time when the need has never been greater.”

The Caring Closet is dedicated to improving the lives of Hamilton City School District children in grades K-12 by providing clothing and basic necessities to those in need. In 2019, the Caring Closet provided more than 898 boxes of items to children in the Hamilton community.

“This donation comes on the heels of our recent cancellation announcement of our sole annual fundraiser, Witches’ Night Out,” said Caring Closet Executive Director Tammy Bucher Sims. “We are so grateful to Flying Ace Express Car Wash & Simoniz for providing the Caring Closet with a monetary gift that will enable us to continue our vital work in the Hamilton community.”
