Soda Creek Elementary School third-graders donated $175 to LIFT-UP of Routt County on Friday. The students earned the money by creating a craft business as part of a unit on economics. The students toured local businesses and sold crafts. LIFT-UP Executive Director David Freseman said he plans to use the money to help needy residents pay utility bills. "We're running low on utility assistance funds," he said.
