ZIPS Supports Combat Impact Outdoors this Veterans Day


Alamogordo, NM (November 7, 2023)— ZIPS Car Wash ( is proud to support local veterans and active military as we honor their dedication and service this week on Veterans Day. ZIPS will offer a FREE Premier car wash to all United States veterans and active military personnel this Saturday, November 11.  Honorees can visit any participating ZIPS location and enter wash code 1123 to redeem the offer on Saturday at over 280 participating locations across the country. ZIPS Car Wash showed its local support of veterans this week with a donation to Combat Impact Outdoors, an Alamogordo based organization. Combat Impact Outdoors is dedicated to helping combat veterans by providing cost free opportunities to experience the great outdoors as a form of therapy to aid in the improvement of mental health and well-being.

“Invigorating our local communities for partnerships and support is critical in promoting healing and wellness through the great outdoors to our nation’s combat veterans,” said B.J. Lawrence, President, Combat Impact Outdoors, Inc. “Because of ZIPS generosity, we are able to further our mission by increasing the number of combat veterans on our cost-free outdoor adventures which results in improved mental health and well-being,” he added.

ZIPS has focused its charitable efforts on those who have served our country by offering free washes for veterans and active military for over 10 years on Veterans Day, and over the last 2 years, has donated $20,000 to local and national veterans service organizations. Within the last week, ZIPS has donated a total of $3,000 to veteran focused organizations across the country, including the donation to Combat Impact Outdoors.  

“We continue to embed ourselves in our local communities and in my role at ZIPS I love to see these relationships being established and nurtured,” said Robert Ortegon, District Manager, ZIPS Car Wash. “We are proud to continue to support Combat Impact Outdoors and our local veterans and we hope all veterans and active military will come enjoy a free wash this Saturday,” he added.
