Two young boys in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, spent their Sunday afternoon doing something special to show their appreciation for local law enforcement and firefighters. Aiden Best and Nathan Perry set up a lemonade stand to raise money for the police department.
“I feel like you haven’t really seen anybody thanking any of them right now so this is for them,” Aiden told reporters.
“We felt like the police have done so much for us and they have nothing in return,” Nathan added. “They just did it because it’s their job.”
The boys used the $50 they raised to buy donuts for the Lee’s Summit Police Department and cinnamon rolls for the fire department. Appreciative police officers let the boys take an up-close gander at their patrol cars as a thank-you.
