A group of children in Farmington want to help people affected by the nearby fires.

Attendees at the Emmanuel Baptist Church summer camp set up a lemonade stand to raise money for the Red Cross.

Their teachers thought it would be a good way to show the kids how a business works. The kids are just excited to help.

"Well, we've had a couple people and we just hope to get some more and enough money to help a lot of people,” Felicity Herington said. “And we hope we get enough money to help all the fires," Kambia Walkup added.

This isn’t the first year the kids have sold lemonade. Last year, they raised more than $250 for the Red Cross.
