Liberty Park Middle School raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through the Pennies for Patients program.
Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). LPM's charity fundraiser was sponsored by the Friends of Rachel Club.
The F.O.R. Club led a competition between the three grade levels at LPMS in order to help this cause. The 7th grade class won the competition and was treated to an ice cream treat and a party. Along with being able to bring in spare change to donate, parents were able to donate money online also.
After a week of fundraising, the total amount collected for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was $2,129.04.
