Local youth shelter fundraiser set for Dec. 11


The eighth annual Greater San Marcos Youth Council’s Children’s Shelter benefit at Conley Car Wash & Express Lube will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 11.

The silent auction ends for the event ends at 5 p.m.  Over the last eight years, over $25,000 has been raised for the children in the shelter. Last year, the 16-bed shelter cared for 122 abused or neglected children. The primary goal of the shelter is to remain open 365 days per year, staffed with trained, caring individuals in a safe, structured and supportive environment.

Donations are needed to continue providing a safe haven for the forgotten children of Hays County. There are several ways to help this cause. Conley Car Wash is selling $1 paper cars to benefit the shelter. In addition, silent auction items are currently on display and there is a donation bin for “wish list” items.

On the date of the fundraiser, Dec. 11, ten percent of every car wash and detail as well as every full service oil change is donated to the shelter. GSMYC will sell lunch and home made baked goods all day. The rain date for the event is Dec. 18.
