MT. JULIET, Tenn. - Police officers in Mt. Juliet said a little girl “touched all of [their] hearts” with “her compassion” and reminded them “of the goodness in our world.”
Little 6-year-old old Caroline Piche set up a lemonade stand Saturday in Wilson County to raise money for the family of fallen Dickson County Sheriff’s Deputy Sergeant Daniel Baker.
Her first customer of the day was Officer Wentzell, and many others stopped by, even letting her get inside a patrol car!
Her mother let her choose a charity to raise money for, and wanting to be a police officer when she grows up, she decided to help Sgt. Baker’s family.
Mt. Juliet Police Captain Tyler Chandler said he visited Caroline’s lemonade stand to show her how much their “department appreciated her efforts.”
Caroline was able to raise $1,125. Great job, Caroline!
