GORDONVILLE, Tex.--The Gordonville Volunteer Fire Department received a sizable donation today from an eight-year-old boy. Roo Carpenter presented members of the department more than $400 he raised by selling raffle tickets.
We've told you about Roo before: in June the Whitesboro resident raised hundreds of dollars for the Sherwood Shores VFD as well.
Sunday Roo raffled off a turkey fryer, some golf balls, and a Wal-Mart gift card donated by local businesses.
"I had came up with the idea of a raffle when we were helping Sherwood Shores, then I heard they were doing a fundraiser over here so came over and did another raffle," Carpenter said.
The Gordonville fire chief says they plan to use the donation to help expand their fire station.
