Pennies for Patients

The National Junior Honor Society will be participating in The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients program beginning Monday, January 14th and ending  Friday, February 1st

If you would like to make a donation to add to your child’s homeroom total, please click this link and search for their homeroom teacher.   

The winning homeroom will receive a Pasta Party catered by Olive Garden and the winning team will be treated to an ice-cream party.  The totals are calculated using the online contributions as well as in-class contributions.

Thank you so much for your support, together, we hope we can reach our school goal of $2019.   

Pennies for Patients is a service-learning project that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers. We are asking that faculty, students, and parents at HMS join this effort of raising funds to help find cures for blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
