Last Saturday, members of the Oro Valley Police Department's
Explorer program held a car wash to support their post and start
The car wash, held at Golder Ranch Fire District's station No. 377,
355 E. Linda Vista Blvd., raised about $1,300 between pre-sold
tickets and sales the day of the event.
After supplies were purchased, the Oro Valley post raised $550 and
gave $550 to help start the Golder Ranch Explorer program
"We had two bays running absolutely with no lull," said Oro Valley
police officer Kevin Mattocks. "It didn't stop. We were washing two
cars and drying two cars at the same time the entire day."
During the wash, there were 20 Explorers and four police officers
donating their time.
Mattocks added that it was a nice thing to see that many kids come
together for a good cause.
The Explorer program offers hands-on activities for young men and
women who are interested in careers in the field of law enforcement
