KIMBERLY, Wis. — A Kimberly teenager is continuing her mission to help veterans.

Aubree Leitermann hosted a blanket making event on Sunday.

She's made more than 700 blankets in recent years for veterans near and far.

On Sunday, she got some help.

"I have no idea how long I'm going to keep doing this, but I hope to keep doing it as long as there's a need and there's money in donations," Aubree said.

Last year, she received the Wisconsin Heroes Award from former first lady Tonette Walker.
