THE HOT August sun beat heavily on 19th Street and Hunting Park Avenue yesterday. But that didn't stop Jameer Greer, 10, and Jhafi Sexton, 15, from standing at the corner, directing drivers to a car wash on the block.
Greer and Sexton spent the day working the event at Time Out Car Wash, in Nicetown, as part of a fundraiser for WANPAE - Worry About Nothing Purpose is Alive in Everyone - a Philly organization that teaches preteens and teenagers entrepreneurship and how to pursue their passions.
Em-sheree Patterson, 27, the founder of WANPAE, teamed up with Time Out owner Lionel Dunbar, 42, for the fundraiser. Dunbar, who's owned the car wash for 13 years, is no stranger to charity days at his business: Last month, the Oak Lane Wildcats football team participated in a fundraiser at Time Out for its program.
