Students at Harding Avenue Elementary School in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District recently held a special assembly to kick off the student council run Pennies for Patients campaign, in association with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
LLS campaign manager Meagan Modell spoke to students about the campaign and how they can be “superheroes” by fundraising for the charity and its patients. She inspired the students by saying how their efforts, no matter how small, can make be impactful.
Pennies for Patients is a science-based, service learning program that allows schools to work together as a class, grade and building to reach goals of fundraising. All monies raised will go to the LLS in support of research, patient support, patient education and advocacy.
