Dear Parents and Communtiy,
Our school is thrilled to be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's School &
Youth Programs! Students who participated in Pennies for Patients, Pasta for Pennies presented
by Olive Garden, or the LLS High School Program, raised nearly $28 million to fund
breakthrough therapies to save the lives of blood cancer patients.
Funds raised through programs like School & Youth enable the discovery and delivery of
therapies that improve the quality of life for patients. From 2000 through 2013, almost 40
percent of new anti-cancer drugs were FDA-approved for blood cancer patients -- more first-ever
approvals than for any other group of cancers -- and many of these were advanced with funding
from LLS.
Follow the link to learn more about how LLS is advancing treatments that save lives…not
someday, but today.
Please make an online donation to help reach our school’s fundraising goal. It’s easy! Look at
the right side of the page for a link to our School Team and click the link; is there a student
or class page you’d like to credit your donation to?
If so, click the student or class page to submit your donation.
If not, simply go back to our School Team page and click on the Donate
Now button at the top of the page to donate to our school.
When you donate, you will automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt to submit to your
company's matching gifts program.
