We wash and vacuum our vehicles every 3 weeks at
the full-service Octopus Car Wash. We
are looking for volunteers who can maintain 3-5 of our vehicles by volunteering approximately 3-4 hours per month.
We reach out to community members at events throughout
the year, including University of Wisconsin orientations, student
organization events, and neighborhood fairs and festivals. We also host our own events (Get Your Green On in March, Earth
Day celebration in April, etc.). We are always looking for members to help spread the word about carsharing at these events.
Car members can earn driving credits for the hours they volunteer. If
you are interested in volunteering, please call 608.204.0000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
