Pueblo County High School students and staff in Colorado have raised nearly $500 for the Wounded Warriors project by selling cookies and hot drinks for 50 cents each throughout November. The money will buy books, magazines, pens, pencils, stamps and envelopes that will be sent to soldiers who are recovering from combat wounds in a German military hospital. Handwritten letters from students will also be included. "We remind the students that they're not just buying the treats for themselves but they are showing gratitude and appreciation for those who are fighting for their freedom," said county librarian Judy Stice.
