CHARLOTTE, N.C.  - American Red Cross members and execs with Autobell Car Wash climbed into a dirty van to raise money for the American Red Cross.  As if the dirty van wasn't bad enough, Wilson showed up to offer his assistance.  But after he "fueled up" by consuming a can of Beanee Weenees, they were in a hurry to get him out of the van.

Thanks to those dropping by Autobell to make donations and businesses including Autobell, Ernst & Young, Shea Homes and BB&T for their donations and a huge thanks to Belk for the great donation that took them over the top.  Everyone got out of the van safely and without aid of the hazmat team.

With all of the bad weather that has hit our country this year and with the spring storms that are continuing now, the American Red Cross needs your help more than ever.  People can help by donating money or stopping by the Red Cross or a local blood drive to donate blood.

Thanks to Autobell  Car Wash on Charlottetown Ave for helping out today.  And congratulations to them as they celebrate their 45th anniversary  this month.
