A Babbitt girl is proving you're never too young to give back to your community. Serenity Barden is just 10 years old and she's already hosting her own fundraiser.

She was at Sam's Club in Hermantown Wednesday stocking up for a spaghetti feed that will take place in Babbitt on Saturday. Money raised will benefit the Mesabi Animal Shelter and Gillette Children's Hospital.

"I just have a passion for it," Barden said. "I want to help people and that's just my dream."

The dinner will be at the Municipal Center in Babbitt from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $7 and kids six and under eat free.

Several businesses have already donated money for supplies.
