Kelsey's aunt Layci Walsh said that during this tough time, the support shown by the community has made all the difference.

"We just wanted to do something to remember Kelsey. Just something to get the community together. Thank you for being there for Kelsey and for our family at this time, and we appreciate it," Walsh said.

On Thursday, Rockhouse Pizza on Green and 1st will donate 10% of all sales to Kelsey's family.
