The Camel Express Car Wash is not conducting its grand opening until January 1, 2015, however, founder Read Hauck has chosen to show his commitment to assisting the less fortunate individuals in the community immediately upon finalizing plans for construction. "There is an increasing number of homeless individuals across the nation and Nashville is no exception," says Hauck.

Ten years ago, Read decided to get fully immersed in the urban missions arena. He quit his job, sold his home, and moved to California to live and work with in a homeless shelter for one year. "I learned more about the homeless community in that one year than I could have in a lifetime of weekend service,” Hauck explains. "The most important lesson that was taken from the experience was that all of us are just a couple of bad decisions from being in the same spot."

Since Hauck has been back in Nashville, a resident for the last 10 years, he has seen an alarming increase in the number of people without any place to sleep at night. This is what prompted Hauck and his organization to become involved in helping the homeless community at the local level.

The Camel Express Car Wash is launching a 12-week campaign to assist the less fortunate by giving them clean new T-shirts for the length of the campaign. Camel Express has set up a website to sell its limited edition 70's themed logo on a 100% soft cotton Jersey style T-shirt. Every shirt that is sold prompts a matching donation from The Camel Express to an individual in the homeless community. These donations are going to be made by way of The Contributor organization. The Contributor is an organization that provides those in need with a respectable way to earn money each day by selling their Contributor publication throughout the Nashville area. Hauck chose this organization because it is one that demands action and produces results.

Shirts can be purchased for $23.00 on the website and Monthly updates on donation numbers will be published on the same site as the campaign progresses.
