A Tennessee girl was Saturday praised for her selfless efforts in trying to help the family of a fallen police officer.

Caroline Piche, 6, set up a lemonade stand in Wilson County to help raise money for the family of Dickson County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Baker, who was killed in the line-of-duty in the last month.

Caroline, who said she wants to be a police officer when she is older, brought more than $1,000 in five hours, according to WSMV-TV. The Mt. Juliet police officers were some of her first customers.

“This morning, we had four Mt. Juliet police officers as our first customers,” her mother Cherish Piche told WSMV-TV. “They were on the social media, talking with another officer to tell them to stop.”

The Mt. Juliet Police Capt. Tyler Chandler said her efforts were appreciated.
