CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – Two little boys in Missouri are capitalizing on the demand for toilet paper to support law enforcement during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Monday, the Chesterfield Police Department shared a photo of the kids at a makeshift stand next to a claw machine filled with toilet paper.

A sign on the children’s stand showed that they were charging $5 for three tries at the claw machine and a chance at taking home some of the essential paper goods.

The sign said all money the boys raised would be donated to Chesterfield police.

The department commended the boys for their ingenuity.

“Creativity - ✔️Entrepreneurial spirit - ✔️A DANG CLAW MACHINE!?!? – ✔️✔️✔️Great job Boys! Great job!” wrote the department in a Facebook post.
