Redding natives give back to children of Shasta County

Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) On a Sunday, most children would like to spend their time playing, enjoying their day. Not the Kaufmann sisters, instead Mackenzie, Faith and Ailani spent their time raising money for a great cause.

“We’re doing a lemonade stand,” said 12-year-old, Mackenzie Kaufmann. “To raise money for the kids in Redding, who lost their homes because of the Carr Fire.

Originally from Redding, the Kaufmann family now living in Eureka, felt compelled to help. Nikki Kaufmann and her three daughters ages 12, 10, and 6 years old decided not only did they want to set up a lemonade stand but also start a GoFundMe page all in effort to bring the children suffering in Shasta County comfort.

“We thought that if we ever lost our homes in the Carr Fire, something that we would want is probably something to snuggle” said 10-year-old, Faith Kaufmann.

The Kaufmann’s said although they are new residents of Eureka, Redding will forever be their home and they couldn’t imagine doing anything else on a Sunday afternoon.
