Many organizations across the Central Coast are stepping up to provide relief for fire victims throughout the state, so two local kids decided to chip in.

Haley and Blake Frisco, of Morro Bay, wanted to help out the cause when they saw the destruction happening in Paradise and Malibu. Their mother also explained to them that their grandfather used to be the Chief of Los Angeles Fire Department when they used to live in Malibu, which made Haley want to provide aid to victims in whatever way she could.

Haley and her brother turned their lemonade stand into a fundraiser for Red Cross fire relief efforts. She also posted a sign saying she wanted to give the money to people whose houses burned down in the fires.

Within just hours, the two raised around $100 and plan to give all of the proceeds to Red Cross for fire relief.
