Des Plaines Police Explorer Post 142 and the Des Plaines Car Wash, 513 S. River Road, are teaming up to raise funds for the post's efforts to attend this year's Illinois State Law Enforcement Explorer Conference in Springfield.
Area residents can get their cars washed from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 23 to support the effort. An alternate date of Saturday, June 30 has been selected for the car wash in case of inclement weather.
The Des Plaines Police Explorer Post provides youth ages 14 to 21 years old an opportunity to participate in a positive, goal-oriented program and develop leadership and interpersonal skills while providing an understanding of law enforcement. The program promotes positive behavioral role models, excellence in academics, participation in community service projects, and good family values.
