East Los Angeles –

On Sunday, July 14, 2013, the Familia Unida organization held its 10th Annual Wheelchair Wash at the East Los Angeles Civic Center.

Attendees were treated to free wheelchair washes, wheelchair tune-ups, haircuts, makeovers and manicures.  There were also booths with information regarding healthcare services, independent living services, and other community resources.

Additionally, there were activities and games for children, healthy eating demonstrations, and a variety of live entertainment.
