For the first time in 2023 and for the 12th consecutive year, the staff at Hoffman Car Wash will be collecting non-perishable food items to support local area food pantries. On Saturday, June 3rd, and Sunday, June 4th, Hoffman Car Wash will provide a free Ultimate car wash with every food donation.
Hoffman Car Wash has partnered with 17 different food pantries to provide much-needed
assistance for families and individuals in need. Then, each Hoffman location will donate the collected items to a food pantry in its neighborhood.

This year’s pantries include
• The Anchor Food Pantry (East Greenbush)
• Bethlehem Food Pantry (Delmar)
• Captain Community Human Services (Clifton Park)
• Franklin Community Center (Northline Rd.)
• The Food Pantries of the Capital District (Central, Village, & Albany-Shaker)
• Fulmont Community Action Agency (Amsterdam & Gloversville)
• Hope 7 Food Pantry (Troy)
• Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (Albany)
• Loaves and Fish Food Pantry (Vestal & Front St.)
• Northeast Regional Food Bank (Circle & Route 7)
• People’s Place (Kingston)
• Rome Food Pantry (Erie Blvd. & Black River Blvd.)
• Salvation Army (Hudson)
• South Glens Falls Moreau Community Center (Queensbury)
• Utica Rescue Mission (New Hartford)
• Utica Food Pantry (Yorkville)
• The Wilton Food Pantry (Saratoga)

Suggestions of non-perishable food items to donate include canned meat or fish, canned entrees (stew, ravioli, etc.), canned fruit in juice, canned spaghetti sauce, canned soup, hot or cold cereal, canned 100% juice, and peanut butter and jelly.

To participate, individuals only need to donate one non-perishable food item at any Exterior or Full Service location. A complete list of locations can be found at

The event is part of Hoffman Car Wash’s “Practice Kindness” initiative, which spreads positivity and goodwill in the communities it serves. By practicing kindness, Hoffman Car Wash hopes to make a positive impact and inspire others to do the same. To add to this, Hoffman Car Wash has a long-standing relationship supporting Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (IPH), Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the American Red Cross, and the ALS Regional Center, among many others.

In addition to helping non-profit organizations, we host two food drives a year, a First Responders’ free wash event and a Veterans Day free wash event.

Hoffman Car Wash also supports many non-profits and youth organizations through its Helping Hands Fundraising program.
