4th grader starts penny drive for tornado victims

Posted:

MEDFORD (WKOW)-- Communities in Wisconsin are coming together to rebuild after tornadoes swept through earlier this month.

In one city, a nine-year-old girl is leading the effort.

Jayda Meyer, a fourth grader in Medford, said she wanted to help when she heard about the tornado damage in Merrill.

So she started a penny drive.

Jayda and her mom decorated plastic tubs and took them to her school and local businesses.

No word on how much Jayda collected.
