“PFLAG believes it is vitally important to help our LGBTQ youth and their allies find safe places in their school environments,” says chapter president Jerry Miller. “We want to make sure that happens here in Henderson County and we hope the community will support the car wash to help us raise funds to support our LGBTQ youth.”
