Congratulations to Mellon Middle School on their successful Pennies for Patients fundraising effort for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, raising $7,482.11. Mellon's efforts made them the 2nd top fundraising school for Pennies for Patients, a three-week program for Elementary and Middle Schools where students collect change and raise funds online while learning about service and philanthropy. This effort is part of the Student Series, which is a series of programs for schools and students at all grade levels to help support the LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
To celebrate this accomplishment, Brenda Bidwell from Leukemia & Lymphoma Society stopped by for the award presentation. Congrats to Mellon Student Council, Mr. Perri's homeroom, and to Mellon students and staff for a job well done.
