The Pennies for Patients program ran from January 9th to 13th. Each child was given a collection box to take home and fill with spare change. Our goal was to raise $500. Thanks to the generosity of the students and their families and the staff we were able to raise $2,268.73.
Students who participate in Pennies for Patients are making a big difference in the lives of others.
Across the U.S. and Canada, millions of students collect spare change in
honor of local patients. Friends, family and neighbors can all
contribute to the classroom and school totals!
