NILES - While most area students probably spent their Friday morning sleeping in or watching cartoons, Faith Linley and Alicia Coultas spent the morning shoveling driveways and sidewalks to raise money.
But this money wasn't going toward a new toy or outfit for themselves, the girls were raising money to buy Christmas presents for the children at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Ind.
Jami stated that Faith's idea came since she visited her cousin at Memorial Hospital.
With the money raised, Faith and her friend Alicia Coultas hope to buy enough gifts to give to all of the children who will be in the hospital during the Christmas holiday.
