Fundraiser – Pennies for Patients

Pennies for Patients – Little Lighthouse Team

Dear PS 101 Families:

As we prepare our Service to Schools end-of-year project, we are excited to share our most productive and important fundraiser with the PS 101 community. The funds collected will benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner! Students, just like us across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaign benefiting those who need it most. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patients program will enable students to collect their pennies and donate them to patients suffering from diseases and support the mission for a cure! Through this schoolwide service learning project, your child will learn about leadership, humanitarian efforts and will inspire and change people’s lives. Pennies for Patients is as simple as collecting spare or loose change, coins around the house or from your own piggy bank to donate to this important cause. Top classes on each grade will be awarded with a complimentary pizza party as a special reward. Please join our crusade and encourage your child to bring in Pennies for Patients and to donate to this wonderful cause.
