A young boy is making a big difference for people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Eight-year-old Dominic Hughes, a third grader at Tucson County Day School raised more than $1,500 and presented a check today for the American Red Cross.

He collected the money through his school;s monthly "Dress Down Day" where students pay money to not wear a uniform.

The school raised more than three times the amount usually raised during Dress Down Day.
