From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, you can get your car washed or its oil changed at Conley Car War and Express Lube, 1200 Thorpe Lane, and help the Greater San Marcos Youth Council (GSMYC) Children’s Shelter.

Fifteen percent of Conley’s proceeds from every car wash, detail and full service oil change will be donated to the shelter.

Also, the GSMYC will sell sausage wraps and baked goods all day. Conley will sell $1 paper cars to benefit the shelter, and a huge silent auction that will accept bids until 5 p.m. that day.

This is the 7th Annual GSMYC Children’s Shelter and Conley Car Wash & Express Lube benefit. Over the last seven years consumers, business sponsors and the GSMYC have generated over $20,000 for the children of the shelter.

Last year, the 16-bed shelter cared for 197 abused or neglected children. The shelter aims to remain open 365 days per year with a trained, caring staff in a safe, structured and supportive environment.

Sponsors and donors for the shelter include Adoring Creations aroma beads, AIA Associates Insurance, Alvin Ords, Amkon General Store & Critter Shop, Beauty by Sherri, Cardinal Frame and Art, Johnny Carino’s, Carquest, Cavender’s Boot City, Center Point Station, Classic Cuts, Councilman Chris Jones, Cracker Barrel, Darryl and Katlin Jiral, Deborah and Tom Conley, Dee Elsner-Dee’s Nail and Hair Haven, Diane Dupont Marlow, Dr. Donnelly, Ellie’s Greenhouse, Ganz, Grande Communications, Great Locations, Great Tans, Grin’s, Hair Fitness Salon, Harry and David, Head West Salon, HEB, Landis Shoe Clinic, Linda Gamboa-Dee’s Nail and Hair Haven, Luby’s, Merle Norman, Mocha and Javas, New Braunfels Quilting Guild, Pennington Cakes, Ramsay Bed and Breakfast, The Root Cellar, Sac n Pac, San Marcos Laser and Body Sculpting, San Marcos Veterinary Clinic, State Representative Patrick Rose, Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, Texas Red’s, Texas Road House, Texas State Alumni Association, Texas State Department of Athletics-Baseball, Two P’s and Calli’s Boutique, Well’s Fargo Bank, World Gym, Laura Oles, and Pak Mail.

There are many ways to help the shelter, in addition to the annual car wash. Monetary donations are always welcome and the shelter can always use the donation of specific services at which one excels like repair work or building. A person wishing to help could collect “wish list ” items at their place of employment among the employees. Wish list items include shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes, combs, soap, hair spray, hair barrettes,  diapers, baby powder, baby clothes, clothing, coats, shoes, pajamas for all ages, art supplies and school supplies, games, books, puzzles, healthy snacks, breakfast cereal, bath towels and wash cloths, kitchen supplies, paper plates, napkins, forks, spoons and anything you would use in your own household.
