MEDFORD, Ore.-- A four-year-old girl is raising money for the family whose home caught fire Wednesday in Medford. The fire happened on Bowmont Circle, off Siskiyou Blvd.
Avery Pierce says her grandparents are neighbors of the fire victims.
She noticed so many people coming on the street to see the fire damage, she thought she'd set up shop, with a good old fashioned lemonade stand.
She and her siblings set out Friday afternoon to raise some money, but to their surprise, their goal of 100 dollars was well-exceeded.
Just a few hours into setting up the stand, the trio had already raised over 600 dollars.
And they're not finished.
They say they'll be running the lemonade stand again, Saturday at 11am.
And they'll give the funds to the family that evening.
