Two Hesperia Unified schools will be holding car washes in the next five days to benefit one of their own.


On Saturday, March 12, Carmel Elementary School will be having a car wash to raise money to benefit the family of custodian Nate Stokes. Stokes' wife died earlier this week, and the school's car wash will help defray the family's funeral costs.


The car wash will be at Carmel, 9321 Glendale Ave., from 8 a.m. to noon for a $5 donation.


On Monday, Cedar Middle School will hold their own carwash to benefit the Stokes family, from 2-5 p.m. Cedar is located at 13565 Cedar Street.
