Midland business hosting fundraiser for injured Midland police officer

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Pepe's Body Shop in Midland has graciously offered to host a car wash to raise money for injured Midland Police Officer Xavier Ramon.

The Body Shop will hold a car wash this Saturday morning at 209 South Terrell.

The event will start at 10 a.m. and you can either get your car washed or enter a raffle for a chance to win a Galaxy 6S phone.

Officer Ramon was injured in an on-duty car accident last month by a drunk driver.  Ramon ended up with a broken jaw, broken shoulder blade plus several stitches.

Officer Ramon is now back home.

If you'd like to donate to the cause, call (432) 222-8206.

The owner of Pepe's, Maria Lopez, said they are doing this because it comes from their heart.

In fact, this isn't the first time they've helped someone in their community.

She added, "It's not about having a body shop, it's about giving back to the community."
