Fundraising @ West End

(This entry was sent in by Mr. Myers, West End Principal)

Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a designated three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!

Students across the country collected pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during a special "Pasta for Pennies" campaign benefiting the Society. The West End School participated this year and raised $1,662.95.

In the Pasta for Pennies campaign, the class collecting the most change during the three week program received a pasta lunch provided by Olive Garden. By raising, $289.59, Mrs. Cremeen’s class won the pasta party lunch. Way to go boys and girls!
