A Brighter Future, an SCL/Michelle P. Waiver based program geared toward helping special-needs adults, held a car wash Friday afternoon behind Advance Auto Parts on Falls Highway. Both staff and program participants worked together at the car wash to raise money for several upcoming events, such as their annual fall festival — a favorite of the group’s participants. Bonnie Hembree, assistant executive director at ABF, said they were “super excited” about the car wash. “They love to do fund-raising. It’s all they’ve talked about for weeks,” said Hembree. They are also hoping to raise enough money for a trip to the beach in October since many of the program’s participants have never been. Hembree said if they don’t reach their goal in time, the money will be put in an account so they can go in the spring.
