This is it! Only one week to go with our Pasta for Pennies campaign, and every donation makes a difference.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. By raising funds, our school helps families who need LLS’s Patient Financial Aid program. Yearly, this can help pay for medicines, the doctor or other treatment-related expenses. How many families will we help through Pasta for Pennies?
Remember every penny counts!
Every four minutes, another child or grown up will be diagnosed with a blood cancer. Remember, your efforts are helping local kids with cancer and funding research around the world to find cures. The sky is the limit! Did you know that it would take 270 billion pennies stacked up to tower 238,857 miles to the moon! Keep up your great work and generosity with Pasta for Pennies!
Remember every penny counts!

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination.
