Pennies for Patients

posted Feb 13, 2018, 10:33 AM by Margie LaPoint

It's time to check the couch cushions for some loose change!  From 2/20-3/9 Laurel Ridge will be participating in a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to fund research and treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease, and myeloma called Pennies for Patients.  We are asking students to search their homes for spare change and bring it in to their first period classes for a classroom competition.  Once the competition starts you can use this link to donate online, too.  Our Leadership class appreciates your support as we raise funds for this important cause.
