The UMD student recovering from severe frostbite has received a lot of support, and Sunday her co-workers joined in.

Alyssa Lommel is a Latchkey Teacher at St. John's School in Duluth and some of her fellow teachers are selling bracelets and key chains to help with medical costs.

Lommel is still in the hospital after spending the night outside last month, but she's not fighting the battle alone.

"These kids she's worked with for the past couple years means a lot in supporting her in her recovery process and we'd like to help the family monetarily as well," teacher Leah Kilsdonk said.

The school will sell the bracelets and key chains all week.

They will also be sold Wednesday afternoon in the Kirby Center at UMD.

Youth bracelets are $3 and adult bracelets and key chains are $5.
