ST. PETERS, MO (KTVI) - A 9-year-old girl is going to great lengths to raise money for American service members.  Ella's Fearless Heroes lemonade stand is located on River Birch Drive in St. Peters.

She is trying to collect funds for a memorial in Jefferson Barracks.

It’s designed to remember our recent fallen soldiers from the Gulf War, Iraqi Freedom, and Afghanistan campaigns.

So far, Ella has collected about one-quarter of her $9,000 goal.

Last year, she collected more than $3,000.
