Car wash in Nevada City raises about $4,700 for laid-off restaurant workers


We went to the benefit car wash at The ham stand in Nevada City this afternoon. It’s near our house. For $20 customers including us received a car wash, a delicious hot dog, and a local beer or Coca Cola (in the vintage-sized bottle). We are regulars at The ham stand, one of our favorite local butcher and sandwich shops.

All of the proceeds are going to local restaurant workers who have lost their jobs or experienced a sharp cutback in hours because of Covid-19. The benefit raised $4,686, according to organizers. It’s a reminder of our town’s “can do” and collaborative spirit.
