Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - For one Duluth five-year-old, a small donation turned into a big dream come true on Thursday.

Five-year-old Arthur Goodman of Duluth became an honorary member of the St. Louis County Rescue Squad after donating $8.02 to the unit.

In a letter, young Goodman said he had saved the money for the squad and hoped it would help buy things they need.

The letter ended by saying "Someday, I hope to work with you too," and that wish came true.

The unit gave the new young member a tour of the headquarters and presented him with special gifts.

Squad captain, Tom Crossmon, says the big thought means a lot to the squad.

"It's probably the biggest donation that we're going to receive all year because of how much that money meant to that five-year-old boy and he thought so much to give it to us," said Tom Crossmon, Captain St. Louis County Rescue Squad.

"My favorite thing was that thing, the big thing right behind you," said honorary member Arthur Goodman.

Arthur says he hopes to join the Rescue Squad one day so he can help people.
