Sept. 9, 2019 - Sept. 16, 2019 our school is helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to find a cure for cancer through Pennies for Patients! LLS is the world’s largest non-profit health organization dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers. The Pennies for Patients program is for elementary and middle schools that would like to support in their mission to create a world without cancer by conducting a fundraising campaign.
Students enjoyed a kickoff assembly on Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 where they learned what Pennies for Patients is and how they can become a part of the Hero Squad to help in finding a cure for cancer. They also learned about kids right here in our local area they will be helping. Each student was given a donations box to put change and cash in to bring to school. No child has been asked to go door to door asking for donations rather talk with their family about the fundraiser. We also have an online donation link https://events.lls.org/pages/
