DAVENPORT — Raising $30,000 to help fund a Habitat for Humanity home is the goal of youth at Our Lady of Victory Parish.

The annual fundraiser will be held June 27 at the West Kimberly Hy-Vee from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and at the East 53rd Hy-Vee from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

People are encouraged to drive their cars to either site to have them washed and to make a donation. Donors may pledge money ahead of time for the fundraiser, organizers say.

If 1,500 people pledge as little as 5 cents per car and the youth wash 400 cars, they will have raised $30,000.

In addition to high school youth from various parishes washing cars, middle school students have an opportunity to help as well this year.
