School & Youth Pennies Program-Kids Helping Kids

The School & Youth Pennies program is Kids helping Kids.  Each year, in 26,000 schools across the country, kids are learning about service, leadership, philanthropy and the power of spare change.  And thanks to their efforts, these kids are saving lives by simply bringing their spare change to school in honor of a local survivor.  In the past 15 years, kids participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) School & Youth Programs - Pennies for Patients and Olive Garden's Pasta For Pennies - have raised more than $125 million to fund blood cancer research and patient aid.

BONUS ... Top fundraising classrooms may qualify for a free pizza party - or catered pasta lunch from Olive Garden - and teachers may qualify for a gift certificate.  

To help your kid or kids make a difference, go to http://www.schoolandyouth.org/tn for more information and to register, or contact Connie Hood, School & Youth Program Coordinator, at connie.hood@lls.org, (615) 331-2980, extension 1744.
