Pennies for Patients
Our school is thrilled to again be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society‘s School & Youth Programs! Whether it’s Pennies for Patients, Pasta for Pennies presented by Olive Garden, or the LLS High School Program, students last year raised nearly $28 million to fund breakthrough therapies to save the lives of blood cancer patients.
From now through April 18th, Southwest Charter will help people who are sick with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. All you have to do is collect coins and other donations and put them in your classroom’s collection box. We can donate more than pennies too. Checks can be made out to “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society” and we can accept online donations as well.
To make an online donation to LLS, you can contribute to our combined school team here or find individual classroom donation pages here.
We also encourage you to get out the word to your friends and family through email and social media. Click here for a sample letter you can send or share with those who might like to contribute to our drive.
All money we collect will go directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If we can raise more than $500 as a school, the classroom that raises the most money will win a party!
