PENNIES FOR PATIENTS!!

Every year Joe Wilson team up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise funds for cancer patients. We have been able to donate over $1000 annually to the organization through Pennies for Patients! The competition amongst homerooms will begin November 1 and end November 11. All cash monies are accepted.  So, get you pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, and dollars together to raise money for a great cause!!!! The homeroom that raises the most money will win a pizza party! 

 

Pennies for Patients” collections continue: for the larger donations please you may make your check payable to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our students are learning about giving back through this program…“Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.”
