It is time to empty that coin jar, clean out those couch cushions, and check your pockets because Pennies for Patients is about to begin! It is estimated that 10.5 billion in loose change is sitting idle in American households. Let’s put that chunk of change to a good cause by donating it to the Pennies for Patients coin drive.

Our 2016 campaign will run from January 25 – February 11. During this time our school will be collecting spare change and other donations to support Pennies for Patients, a cancer education program and fundraiser benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma

Society. There will be MANY events that your child can participate in to help us reach our goal of $1,600! Last year we raised $1,428.03. Let’s work together for a great cause. Dates you won’t want to miss!

***New this year – Go on line and set up your child’s own webpage – please join as an
individual.
