NEWS: Law Hosts 9/11 Car Wash For Tribute Center
By Molly Mercaldo – Entertainment Editor
The second annual Jonathan Law 9/11 car wash was held on Saturday, September 9, at Dulin Automotive in Milford to raise money for the 9/11 Tribute Museum in New York City.
The car wash was started last year by Mrs. Rowley, a history teacher at Law, to remember 9/11 and to continue the Act of Kindness movement.
“The event went really well; we raised more money than last year,” history teacher Mr. Zuraw said.
Approximately 35 Law students participated in this fundraiser as well as several teachers, who worked together to raise over $300 for the Tribute Center.
The event was free for all first responders and cost $5 for anyone else who wanted to get a car wash.
“To help that organization means a lot to us as a department and as a school,” history teacher Mr. Evanko said.
Law has partnered with the 9/11 Tribute Center for years and currently has many student features in the center.
“The car wash was really well organized and successful,” said sophomore Morgan Taylor, who was a volunteer at the event. “We washed a lot of cars.”
This event was organized by the history department at Law, including staff members like Zuraw, Batson, and Rowley.
“The event went smoothly,” freshman volunteer Ashley Shaw said. “We all worked together for a good cause.”
The Law faculty members who arranged this event were very thankful for all of those who helped out at the car wash.
Members from Law’s Key Club volunteered to work at this event as well as other Law students.
“I loved being a part of something that has an impact on my community,” sophomore Skylar Sosa said. “Volunteering made me feel good because 9/11 had a huge impact on our country.”
