Clayton kids raise funds for back-to-school cause

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KSDK) - A couple of kids made big bucks Sunday at a lemonade stand in Clayton, but they don't plan to keep a dime.

Instead, Tucker and Sam Abeles plan to give it to the "Back To School Store."

That's an effort from the National Council of Jewish Women that helps low-income children get school supplies, warm coats and anything else they need for the school year.

Tucker and Sam's mother said the boys saw her working in the store and wanted to work there too, but at just 5.5 and 4 years old, they were too young.

So they decided to raise money by holding two lemonade stand fundraisers instead.

When they add up the money from both lemonade stands, the boys made nearly $430, which is enough to sponsor more than two students.
