Jessie Miller, a seventh-grader at DeSales Catholic School in Lockport, organized a dress down day at her school to raise money for Niagara Hospice.
"I wanted to help, because the people at Niagara Hospice took such good care of my Papa," says Miller. The students and teachers raised $328.50 to help support programs and services at Niagara Hospice.
