CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT)- While people in Oklahoma are recovering from a second round of tornadoes, a group of children in Chesterfield worked hard Saturday to collect hundreds of dollars -- and all it took was a lemonade stand.
On a hot day, a cold glass of lemonade is pretty ingenious. Their tireless effort at a street corner in the Bayhill Pointe neighborhood pays off as a wave of cars stop by to get a cup or just make a donation.
In two hours, they raised close to $800 and donations continue to roll in.
NBC12 was on hand to catch all the action and we asked one of the children how they came up with the plan:
"I just wanted to help out with them, and because I was at the dinner table and wanted something to do," said Rachael Hicks. "They're all my friends and all live in my same neighborhood and I just asked them to help."
