MERRILLVILLE | Pierce Middle School staff were able to wear jeans for a day if they pay.
Staff were encouraged to participate for a good cause. If they paid $5.00 they were able to wear jeans for the day. The money went to the G.I. GO Fund. The GI Go Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization which assist our returning veterans with their transition back to civilian life, by providing employment and educational opportunities as well as providing a direct path to their educational and health benefits.
Everyone felt that veterans have done so much for us, this was a way we could give back to them. We want to remember our soldiers on Veterans Day and do something that is helpful to them.
