Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (Pennies for Patients)

The student council has partnered with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) again this year to participate in their Pennies for Patients program. This program raises money for children in our area who are battling cancer. The money we raise helps local children and their families with hospital and medical bills. In our school we have placed posters of the “Hero’s” we are working to help. They are the children we can see and read about to help put a face to who we help. Our goal is to one day put an end to childhood cancer! Every penny counts, so if you are able, we would appreciate your donation. TJ’s goal is to raise $2,000.

Spirit days will accompany the two weeks March 8-19 of our fundraising. A letter will go home next week with the days so you can plan ahead.
