PHOENIX – As part of a yearlong effort to pay tribute to injured servicemen and women, Phoenix students have raised $500 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Members of the John C. Birdlebough High School Student Council adopted the Wounded Warrior Project as its charitable cause for the year.
The project serves veterans who suffered injuries during military service on or after September 11, 2001.
According to student council advisor Lisa Spereno, students and the community have embraced the cause since the beginning of the school year.
Council members sold Wounded Warrior Project bracelets and organized a faculty versus Air Force game to raise money for the organization.
“Our students have really dedicated themselves to the Wounded Warrior Project all year,” Spereno said. “It’s a great organization and, all in all, we will be donating $500 to them.”
