GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) A local car wash is teaming up with Marillac Clinic to help people in need of affordable health care.

Splish Splash donated 20 percent of Saturday's proceeds to the Marillac Clinic and hundreds of cars showed up to get clean and support the cause.

It is the first time Marillac has worked with Splish Splash for this kind of fundraiser, but event organizers said they're hoping it won't be the last.

"It really means more support for our patients and also helps keep the healthcare costs lower in the community," said Claudia Crowell, from Marillac Clinic. "We really like being able to collaborate with another business here."

Marillac Clinic representatives collected extra donations and gave out air fresheners to car wash customers.

The clinic provides care for low income or uninsured individuals and families.
