Pennies for Patients

Pennies For Patients
Posted on 12/02/2019
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society LogoDuring the two week time span of November 8th through November 22nd, Pfeiffer Elementary School students and staff participated in a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The fundraiser is called "Pennies for Patients," and helps raise money for the LLS.  The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. 

Our school had a goal of $750.  We SURPASSED our goal by raising $1,040.16!  Students were encouraged to collect pennies and other loose change from home.  We also raised money by holding two different dress-down Fridays where students were able to dress down for a 1 dollar donation.  The most exciting activity was our "Stuck for a Buck" campaign.  For each dollar that a student donated on a certain day, they were given a piece of duct tape.  The tape was used at an assembly to stick our own Mr. Himmelright to the wall! 

Mrs. Hesketh's 3rd grade class had the largest collection at $150.30, and will be receiving a pizza party!

Mrs. McDonald's 2nd grade class was in second place with $140.13 collected!  Mrs. Piskur's 5th grade class collected $117.86!

Thank you , Pfeiffer Families, for your support with this important fundraiser!
