For the last 12-years a small group in Grafton has collected used stamps off envelopes to raise money for veterans.

Now, despite his disabilities, 35-year old Jesse Larson with the help up the friendship group is putting boxes in local business's to keep the collection going.

They're sent to a stamp collector who gives 25-dollars for every thousand stamps. To date, more than 300-thousand stamps have been collected.
