Students at Charles Campagne Elementary School kicked off their Pennies for Patients campaign, held in association with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, with a special assembly on February 28, 2019.

LLS campaign manager, Kerianne Stein spoke to students about the campaign and how they can be “superheroes” by fundraising for the charity and its patients. She inspired the students by saying how their efforts, no matter how small, can be impactful.

Pennies for Patients is a science-based, service learning program that allows schools to work together as a class, grade, and building to reach goals of fundraising. LLS connects schools with local blood cancer patients in addition to providing tangible life skills to participants and allowing students to see the impact they’re making in the lives of others.

Charles Campagne looks forward to seeing the results of this program as students and staff members dedicate themselves to making a difference!
