FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -

Folks in Fitzgerald not only quenched their thirst on Friday, but they also helped kids in their thirst for knowledge.

Second grader Nate and kindergartner Natalee Phillips go to school at Irwin County Elementary.

Nate wanted to help kids his age, so they got their mother, Ashley to help them set up a lemonade stand outside their grandparents' home in Fitzgerald.

"Well my mama thought about selling pumpkins and all and I was like it's out of season and all and I asked her about selling lemonade," said Nate.

Nate and Natalee have raised $450 so far.

The money will be used to buy backpacks for young students in Irwin and Ben Hill Counties.
