Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Some local kids were asking for help getting to California next month.
The Devil Pups of Southern Nevada held a car wash fundraiser Saturday, at the VFW Post 3848 on Lake Mead Parkway, near Basic Road in Henderson.
The goal was to help raise money to send more than two-dozen teens to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton for ten days.
"We are a leadership camp that teaches the kids about self-esteem, about being motivated, working as a team, finishing what you started, which we know kids don't normally do that sometimes," said Marie Tomao, Southern Nevada Devil Pups.
The Devil Pups program is a regional non-profit organization.
The teens have all performed hours of community service throughout the Valley.
