Tuesday’s hometown hero made a very personal donation.

Sophie Sheffer is a fourth-grader at Dillsburg Elementary and donated her hair to the “Locks of Love” campaign. Sheffer was inspired after reading an article in class about a young girl with alopecia, and the self-esteem she gained with a hairpiece from “Locks of Love.”
