KENNEWICK, WA - A little boy and his local family are in Seattle living out of hospital rooms and care facilities as he fights leukemia. The community stepped in for some help Saturday at Li'l Firehouse Coffee in Kennewick.

Plenty of ssuper heroesbig and tiny were out there collecting donations for the family and toys for little Dustin who's only 4 years old. The employees at the coffee shop have also been donating their tips to the fund this week. As the owner explained to NBC Right Now this cause hits close to home.

"For me personally my sister died at 4-years-old of leukemia back in the 70's. This kid's 4-years-old and he has leukemia so it hits really close to me and my family. Also we do many other things like MDA or burn foundation. We're just trying to help people out because people are buying our product and we want to give back to the community," said Chuck Sleater.

Li'l Firehouse is also donating all the profits from their revitalize drink sales to the cause through Sunday. Tumbleweeds in Richland where Dustin's mom works has been selling "Dustin Burritos" and raising money for the family.
