Ten year old Lila Pratt of Chico raised more than $2,000 dollars at her lemonade stand over the weekend to help support victims of the Carr Fire in Redding.

It’s a family effort, spearheaded by Lila, who is using the money to buy and fill 48 backpacks with supplies kids need to go back to school. Yahoo reports, the fully loaded book bags will be donated to kids who have been displaced by the fire.

“Lila has so far purchased and donated items such as blankets, pillows, water bottles, Gatorade, diapers, baby wipes, children’s snacks, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, and games/activities for children,” says her mom Kirrin.
