BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) -- Residents of the southeast Kansas town of Baxter Springs are raising money to help the family of a 7-year-old girl who was accidentally shot in the eye with an arrow.

The Joplin Globe (http://is.gd/1SdLwO ) reports that Jayce Cunningham has undergone surgeries at Freeman Hospital West in Joplin, Mo., and another at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo.

Mandy Kinsley is one of numerous individuals helping to plan and carry out fundraisers in upcoming weeks. Kinsley says Jayce is expected to undergo a minimum of five surgeries to save her eye. But Kinsley says it's unknown whether her vision can be saved because there was damage to her retina.

Money raised at a weekend rummage sale and other fundraisers will be used to help offset the family's travel expenses.
