It’s not exactly unusual for kids to wash cars over the summer to earn some cash. But when Jessica Detrick heard that one boy in her neighborhood was working hard to fund his next school year, the revelation broke her heart. So with a little encouragement from her, that’s when the community decided to step in.
Detrick and her fiancé Jonathan Haltam live in Eatonville, Florida. In summer 2018 they had noticed one of their neighbors, a young boy called Javari, offering to wash cars in the area for $20 a go, until eventually, the youngster knocked on their door.
