A pair of fourth graders is making the most of their holidays making arts and crafts to benefit the Salvation Army.

Jackson Suber and Brady Brown, both 9-years-old, have been stationed outside the Stomping Grounds at 208 Trade Street the past two days making different shapes and sizes of multicolored sand jars and beaded necklaces. Prices range $5 and under.

JB’s Arts and Crafts, as the Chandler Creek students call their business, divides the profits 50 percent to Salvation Army and split the other half between themselves.

“I watched a movie about the Salvation Army and it clicked,” Jackson said of choosing the non-profit.

Brady said, “We’re friends and now we have a business.”

Jackson and Brady said they plan on remaining open Tuesday until 5 o'clock and Wednesday until 1 p.m.
