Making a Difference One Coin at a Time
During the week of February 1st to the 5th we will be holding a Pennies for Patients fundraiser in aid of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The LLS is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. The goal is to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
To show support for this cause our students are invited to bring coins/ loose change to their classroom in the coin collection boxes that were sent home this week. The teachers will count the coins daily to track classroom standings.The students do not have to use the boxes, a baggie or handful of pennies are all welcome. At the end of the week the coins will be deposited into the bank and the total will be forwarded to the LLS.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn how their involvement can make a difference in helping to save the lives of blood cancer patients as it encourages compassion and becoming life long givers.
Thank you for your support
