The Riverhead Move the Animal Shelter organization is holding a car wash Sunday at Riverhead Toyota on Route 58 to raise money to build a new town animal shelter.

MTAS founder Denise Lucas said the store was closed, but five workers from Absolute Detailing got to the garage at 7 a.m. to open up for the day.

“All five of them came to work for free today,” she said. “They came on their day off to raise money.”

The car wash will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and costs a $10 donation to the organzation. T-Shirts and other goodies are also available for an additional donation.

Ms. Lucas said she has already spoken with the North Fork Animal Welfare League, who will take over running the town’s current shelter this spring, about partnering together to get the new shelter built.

Correction: The fundraiser will end at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon, not 5 p.m. as was originally posted.
