Jill’s House Race Across America

The Race Across America is a bike race organized to raise money for Jill’s House. Jill’s House provides respite for children with intellectual disabilities and their families in the Greater Washington DC area. Their mission is to be a safe haven to which parents can entrust their children, giving the parents a time of rest. What an amazing cause! The 2014 race starts on June 14 in Oceanside California and will end in Annapolis, Maryland. Cardinal Plaza Shell is a proud sponsor of this effort. You can find out more at www.teamjillshouse.com.

Operation Starfish

Operation Starfish is an amazing charity started by our friend, the late Fr. Martin from the Church of the Nativity in Burke, VA. Through Operation Starfish, we are able to ease the suffering of the people in Haiti. The Church of the Nativity is now building their 7th “Starfish” village. In each village, families are relocated from the worst slums on Earth, such as the Cap-Haitian, to safe and clean villages built by Operation Starfish. The needs are overwhelming in an area just a 90 minute flight from Walt Disney World.

Car Wash Location

We make the station available to local groups to hold car washes. These have happened every Saturday and Sunday since the early 1970’s, and it has become a tradition. The groups typically average about $900-1200 in a day, but some large groups like the football teams can double that.


West Springfield Little League

If you ever get a chance to stop by the park at Byron Ave., you will be
amazed at the dedication of the volunteers as well as the quality of the play.
Please cheer on any teams that happen to have “Cardinal Plaza Shell”
emblazoned on their backs.
