PEORIA, Ill. -- Following the death of an Illinois State Trooper Monday, one Peoria store is looking to help during the holidays.

State Trooper Kyle Deatherage was killed after being struck by a semi on I-55 Monday morning.

Now, Apricot Lane in the Shoppes of Grand Prairie is lending his family a helping hand.

This weekend, the store will put 20 percent of all sales towards an education fund for Deatherage's children.

Apricot Lane will also be accepting monetary donations for the family.

Owner of the store, Jenna Green, whose husband is also a state trooper, came up with the idea following the tragic news.

"She heard the story and it obviously broke her heart. It hit really close to home for her that her husband is a state trooper and just imagining what that might be like for them especially through the holidays," said Apricot Lane Manager Ashley Drissi.

The visitation for Trooper Deatherage is Friday from 4:30 to 8 p.m.

The funeral is this Saturday at 8 am at Triad High School in Troy Illinois
