School of the Arts launches Pennies for Patients

  • Thursday, February 28, 2013

SOA Middle and High School teachers have launched The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients for 2013. There are collection boxes every room where coins may be deposited daily or parents can go online at http://scar/sy/llsevent.org/CharlestonCountySchoolArts.

Last year SOA students raised more than $900 and this year the school plans to top the $1,000 mark. 

There are several teachers in the school currently diagnosed with cancer and several others recovering, so this effort has special meaning to students, teachers and staff locally.

Every year across the country, the kid’s voices are heard. They show the world just how powerful kids can be by making huge differences in the lives of blood cancer patients.

Just by collecting change for the past 16 years, the children and teens across the country have raised more than $211 million, which goes directly to funding blood cancer research and patient aid.

Kids learn not only the kind of impact they can have, but about leadership and what “doing good” for others can mean. Plus they save lives - a lesson they won’t soon forget.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society leads the way in blood cancer research and has brought doctors to the threshold of cures and therapies that are changing the lives of patients, right now. To learn more about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, go to http://www.lls.org/.
