RAHWAY — Recently threatened with arrest, the teenage boys known as the "Bushmen" — for the foliage suits they donned in Rahway River Park, where they jumped out at unsuspecting residents — have quickly turned their reputations around.

ABC7 Eyewitness News reported that the teens are using their fleeting fame to do some good; namely, selling T-shirts to benefit their local food pantry, Rahway Food for Friends.

Rahway Mayor Samson Steinman told ABC7 the boys' charity work was "a positive thing," and that they had been invited to the town's recent Trunk or Treat for Halloween ... in their Bushmen outfits.

The T-shirts, tank tops, and hoodies the kids are selling can be purchased here.
