Car Wash Benefit for Kingsville Narcotics Task Force Officer

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A Kingsville Narcotics Task Force officer and his wife continue to receive support from the community and area non-profits. A car wash event was held for them Friday.

Cash and cars rolled into the parking lot at the 3100 block of Alameda. The car wash was hosted by members of the Palmer Drug Abuse Program, otherwise known as PDAP.

All of the money collected will go to Kingsville Narcotics Task Force Officer Ken Starr and his wife, whose home burned down a month ago. Both of theme were severely injured in that fire.

Organizers said, as an officer of the law, Starr has put his life on the line and should not have to struggle to meet daily needs and mounting medical bills.

"That's what we do at PDAP, because the community helps us, and that's what it's all about," said James Bulin, a peer support counselor at PDAP.

The car wash benefit is expected to wrap up at 6 p.m.
