KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

A car wash is happening outside a Kansas City, KS Hardee's to raise money for a heart-breaking cause.

A 5-year-old girl died in an apartment fire Saturday in KCK. Now, the community is raising money for a celebration of her life.

Jatziry was loved by so many. Co-workers of her mother are hosting a car wash to raise money for the family. It is located in the Hardee’s parking lot at 80th Street and State Avenue.  They lost everything in the house fire.

Since Jatziry's untimely death, friends have been working around the clock to ease the burden on the family.

The support for the family has been overwhelming. Hardee’s general manager Tony Hultz says his employees are family, and when one is down, they are here to help.

“It was one simple phone call to my boss. He said, 'Do it ... take care of your people. Do what you can do and take care of your people,'" Hultz said.

“I hope they know how much the communities hearts are broken when things like this happen, especially when it’s a young child," Wyandotte County Commissioner Melissa Bynum said.

You still have time to come out and get a car wash. They are taking donations.

The group will be there until 6 p.m. There’s also a GoFunMe page.  Jatziry will be laid to rest on Saturday.
