Pennies for Patients: Kids making BIG change by collecting SMALL change
Pennies for Patients is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience making a difference through teamwork—working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight blood cancers like leukemia.
How it Works: Students collect spare change over a three-week period during February or March. The change can come from friends or relatives or underneath the couch cushions. What's important is that the change is collected.
Why it's Easy: LLS provides everything your school needs to run the program, including:
- Lesson plans that meet service learning and character education standards
- Classroom collection boxes
- Individual collection boxes
- Educational video
- Prizes and awards for classrooms and schools
- Opportunity for an educational kickoff assembly
Register today! We're hoping that you will join schools across North America & Canada in teaching kids what it means to save lives by making change! Complete our online registration form or contact us for more information.
Students not only enjoy participating but feel a great sense of pride in helping others. Their efforts will collect one more thing in addition to spare change, the gratitude of cancer patients and their families.
