POULSBO — Mike’s Car Wash and Detail on 7th Avenue in Poulsbo contributed $500 to the Poulsbo Lions/Raab Foundation Bellringer Fund, a portion of proceeds from car washes in December.

Mike’s Car Wash and Detail is owned by Mike Brooks. The business is a regular contributor to the fund.

Brooks’ contribution, which came as the campaign came to a close, boosted the fund’s total to $29,346.

Money raised by the Poulsbo Lions/Raab Foundation Bellringer Fund are used to help local residents with medical co-pays, gas vouchers, emergency housing, eviction prevention and utility assistance. Grants are administered by North Kitsap Fishline, ShareNet and St. Vincent de Paul.

North Kitsap’s Bellringer Fund is different than the Bellringer Fund administered by the Kitsap Sun; the Lions/Raab Bellringer Fund serves only North Kitsap. It was founded in the 1940s by Frank and Mabel Raab as a way for neighbors to help each other during emergencies.

The fund helps at least 300 families a year. In addition, the fund supplies Christmas food baskets to 100 local families.

Donations are accepted year-round for the fund — P.O. Box 1244, Poulsbo 98370. Donations are tax-deductible.
