DALLAS – A 7-year-old wants to help a neighborhood rebuild after the Dallas tornado.
Brinley Smith and her family live in the Preston Hollow area.
It’s an area that was hit hard by an EF-3 tornado in October.
Her goal is to raise $500,000 to buy and plant more than 3,000 trees in her neighborhood.
The Smith family created the non-profit organization Kids Luv Trees and partnered with the Texas Trees Foundation and Retreet to reach the goal.
“A tree got knocked down in our driveway, and we couldn’t go to school. We were out walking and I saw a lot of the trees knocked down and the homes destroyed, and I just wanted to do something about it,” said Brinley and Preston Smith.
They hope to reach their $500,000 goal by the end of March.
