Anchorage police officers and neighborhood kids and teens worked side by side Thursday, scrubbing windows and wheels during a car wash fundraiser for the Mountain View Boys & Girls Club.
For several hours, Price Street filled with squad cars, people and buckets of soapy water. A few blocks away, girls waved handmade signs on the street corner. Go to the car wash, they say. Straight ahead. $10.
“It helps programs to keep going on,” says 9-year-old Ophelia.
“We wanted to make some money for our BGC,” says her twin sister, Olivia.
“Actually, police aren’t supposed to wash cars. That’s the thing that’s funny.”
