RED RIVER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A fundraiser is being held on Wednesday to help pay for funeral costs for a 5-year-old drowning victim.

Aniya Taylor was found in five feet of water in a lake swimming area at the Grand Bayou Resort on Friday, July 12th.

Starting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, a fundraiser will be held at three Raising Canes locations including Mansfield Road, Youree Drive and in Natchitoches. "This is a very tragic situation…The family had no means of support as far as the funeral services. So this is our way of giving back from the community to the family," says District 10 Caddo Commissioner David Cox.

Be sure to mention Word of Deliverance Family Life Church or Aniya Taylor to participate in the fundraiser.
