WILDWOOD, Mo (KMOV) -- Four Fairway Elementary students set up a lemonade stand after school last Wednesday to raise money for the victims of Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

Brothers Ethan (3rd grade) and Noah Stage (1st grade) and fellow classmates Grant Leonard and Riley Lewis set up a lemonade stand at the corner of Nantucket Island and Old Fairway Drives.

Many generous motorists stopped and donated to the cause, including Engine Company 3344 from the Metro West Fire Protection District. 

"These boys are terrific kids who really have a huge heart. We are happy to support a good cause and such tremendous young men," said Capt. Mike Digman.

The four boys raised over $725.00 in less than two hours. "I had fun, and it was good to work with my brother," said Noah.

The boys plan on forwarding the money to the Red Cross to assist with the relief efforts.
