FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Public Safety Car Wash Fundraiser for Addison Rusticus
The Holland Department of Public Safety is inviting everyone out to a car wash fundraiser to be held at the Kollen Park Fire Station located at 279 Kollen Park Drive, right across from Kollen Park this coming Saturday, October 12 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Members of the police and fire division will be accepting donations that will go to benefit the Addison Rusticus Education Fund.

Public Safety officials urge the public to come out in support of this great cause and encourage parents and grandparents to bring their children to see the fire trucks and equipment at the station while their vehicle is being washed by police and fire personnel.
All proceeds received at the event will be given to the education fund established for Addison. Donations to the Addison Rusticus Education Fund will also be accepted at any Huntington Bank location.
