Agassiz Christian students had fun under the sun while committing good deeds for local residents Friday.

Students come clean with kindness

Intermediate elementary students at Agassiz Christian school wanted to finish their school year on a note of positivity.

Intermediate elementary students at Agassiz Christian school wanted to finish their school year on a note of positivity, with one big act of kindness for community members.

So they made signs, grabbed pales, sponges, and a few hoses and off ered free car washes to passersby Friday afternoon.

When asked why she wanted to help her peers with the free act of kindness Nevaeh Letourneau’s response was simple: “Because it helps our community,” she said.

Fellow student Ryan Post said the car wash was one way “to bring the world together and get to know each other.”

And while Grade four and five students split shifts with the Grade six and sevens washing community members cars, the free service was just what tourists Jim and Louise Kaye were in need of.

The couple, originally from Langley but frequent visitors to Harrison Hot Springs, were driving around town looking for a car wash when they decided to drive down Morrow Road.

The kids were equally excited when they pulled into the school parking lot for a wash, and took turns scrubbing, sudsing and wiping down the car.

“It was a very nice act,” Louise said.

“It was just what we were looking for,” Jim added with a smile.

Before leaving, the couple insisted on leaving a small donation with the students, which was later passed on to Agassiz-Harrison Community Services food bank.
