Richardson Children Fund Car Wash

 

There will be a car wash to benefit the Richardson children on Wednesday August 10, 2011 from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm at the Frederick Shell Gas Station on Rt. 40.  This car wash will benefit the Richardson Children's Fund.  This fund was created to help support the four children, ages 6, 8, 10 & 16 that were left behind when Ms. Tranice Richardson was tragically murdered on July 8th.

The goal of this fund is to raise at least $20,000 to be used for the needs of Ms. Richardson's four children and most importantly show that the Community will Come Together and Stand Up when a citizen is in need. This fund will be held by Frederick Alliance For Youth.  

Checks can be made payable to:  Frederick Alliance For Youth and in the "memo" section simply write "Richardson Children".

City Administration will be stopping by along with some of the Frederick Police lending a hand in support.
