Ladies of the Brannan Park retirement community recently organized a car wash to raise money for the Auburn Food Bank.

Brannan Park residents dressed in T-shirts stylized with bikinis washed cars while collecting nonperishable food for the food bank, which provides relief to families and individuals living within the boundaries of the Auburn School District.

The car wash is one of many programs designed to push a more dynamic approach to elder care at Brannan Park, one of 20 retirement communities that are part of the Village Concepts family.
