Car wash for a cause!

Monday, June 4, 2012

Anyone interested in donating to a good cause and getting their car washed can stop by Advance Auto Parts, Brazil, where friends and family of the late Troy Jeffrey II are conducting a donation car wash. According to Baylor Girton, who was good friends with Jeffrey, all the money donated goes directly to Jeffrey's family. Girton said the car wash crew will be out again on Tuesday at Advanced Auto Parts from 9 a.m.-close. In addition, there has also been a bank account opened in Jeffrey's honor at area First Financial Banks where donations can be made. "(We're) so thankful for everyone that helps," Girton said. "It really shows how a community can come through (in tough times)." Jeffrey was killed in a single vehicle accident on Saturday, June 2, after losing control of his vehicle. On hand for the picture included Megan Brunette (back row, from left), Cole Watts, Desiree Williamson, Kelsey Batchelor, Baylor Girton, Brody Girton, John Boys, Austin Byrd, Shelby Boys, Rhiannon Wilkerson, Jacob Vogel (front row, from left) and Tanner Wilson.

I dropped my donation by there and was honestly impressed by this group of kids. Dont know a single one of them and didnt know Troy but can't imagine not being able to lay my child to rest because I couldnt afford a funeral. Three young men stopped what they were doing to shake my hand and thank me and were very gracious. God bless these kids and the family and friends of Troy.

Also stopped by Page's and donated to the Snyder boy. God bless them as well. Please everyone, take a minute and drop a dollar or two in for these kids. I was told the carwash will be there again tomorrow.

I know several of these kids and couldn't be more proud of the amount they raised for both the Jeffries and Snyder boy.

Please continue to give to the parents of these children, and take a moment to think about $10,000 in life insurance for your own child(ren). No one wants to think something like this could happen .. but it can .. and it does, unfortunately. Protect yourself and your children.
