Pennies for Patients

Pennies for Patients

May 11-May 15

Starting the week of May 11, 2015, Fulton will join almost

30,000 schools nationwide by participating in "Pennies for

Patients.” All week, our students can be a part of a program,

run by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, that helps

patients with blood cancers. Their mission is to cure leukemia,

lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and improve the

quality of life of patients and their families. Donations from

our program help families of patients pay for medicines,

doctors, or other treatment-related expenses, in addition to

help funding research for a cure.

Students can collect coins and other donations and put them

in the classroom's collection box. Remember that every single

penny counts! The class who collects the most money will win

their very own PASTA PARTY here at Fulton!

Any parent volunteers who are interested in helping the week

of the 11th, please contact Ms. Valente.
