During the month of August, Woodward students have been collecting pennies – among other currency – to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. At last tally, their Pennies for Patients drive had collected more than $2,000.
Many of the students went above and beyond just searching for spare change. A few weeks ago, third graders Olivia Battles and Elise Gobron set up a stand in their neighborhood to sell friendship pins, duct tape bracelets, rings and notebooks they made themselves, along with lemonade, to raise money for the cause.
Good for them!
