Businesses are working together to show their support after a 9-year-old Dayton girl died in a Pennsylvania bus crash.

The bus Ruskin Elementary School student Jaremy Vazquez was riding was supposed to make stops in Miami Twp., Vandalia and Springfield.

News Center 7's Josh Jackson was at La Michoacana on Thursday, where a collection jar that hasn't been there a full 24 hours already is starting to fill.

Managers said the store will be taking donations until 9 p.m., and that 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward the Vazquez family’s funeral expenses.

Store worker Marilis Hussain said she can't imagine how hard it is for the family to cope with their loss.

“It’s sad. Especially because I’m a mom and a grandmother,” she said. “It must be so hard for the family to come to grips with that.”

Five people died and 50 others were hurt on Sunday when the driver of a bus in Pennsylvania lost control and crashed into a concrete median.
