The recovery in west continued today with a special fundraiser organized by a four-year-old boy.
Parker's Park Project was dreamed up by little Parker Pustjovsky, son of Joey Pustjovsky who was a West volunteer firefighter killed in the fertilizer plant explosion.
The West City Park was practically destroyed in the explosion.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, Parker decided that he wanted to do something to help bring it back to life. He got to work and put together a special benefit selling hot dogs, baked goods, and t-shirts.
Hundreds of people turned out today to show their support. Parker managed to raise more than $50,000 today.
Work to rebuild the city park is expected to begin very soon.
