Ice Cream for Cassidy Almquist
We're continuing to follow the progress of 17-year-old Cassidy Almquist of Kennewick, the young girl who was injured three weeks ago during an accident at church camp.
At Ranch and Home in Kennewick today, friends of Cassidy have an ice cream truck set up in the parking lot, selling ice cream, and all the proceeds will go to Cassidy's recovery.
There has been an ongoing flow of people coming out to the Little Red Ice Cream Truck to show their support for Cassidy.
A number of people say they have never even met Cassidy, but heard her story and felt the need to contribute, whether by buying ice cream today or coffee from Dutch Brothers last week, donating money, or simply sending out a prayer.
The family of one of Cassidy's friends from her church group owns the truck and is volunteering today, she has a message for her dear friend
"We just want her know there's a lot people who care about her and would do anything we can to help with whatever it's going to cost," said Aspen Flanagan. "We really wanted her to feel comforted and everything."
We'll be sure to update you on how much money they raise today.
For those who haven't had a chance to get down there, the Little Red Ice Cream Truck will be in the Ranch and Home parking lot until the sun goes down, or until they sell out of ice cream, whichever comes first.
