The two suspects, Deante Small, 19, and a 16-year-old stole money and one of the kid’s iPod. 
However, one Brandon man went above and beyond to make up for their loss. 
“It’s just rewarding to give back and see a smile in his face,” Leckington said. 
He also gave White’s mom a $150 gift card. 
And that’s not all they received. White’s mom received an apology letter from the mother of Deante Small, the 19-year-old accused of robbing the two boys. 
“It’s one thing to receive so much support from the community, but when you actually receive a letter from the individual who did it, and his mom apologizing for her son, it’s just really special,” White’s mom said. 
Deante Small’s mother also donated a stand, a chair, and lemonade to help the kids out.
