Pleasanton Middle School students worked tirelessly to raise funds for the Pennies for Patients campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
They collected $9,042.95 in donations and on Thursday, student leaders presented the check to LLS. Erin Lutsko, Pennies for Patients Campaign Manager, said that in her five years running the campaign, this is the single largest donation she’s seen.
“To see such a record-breaking donation from children, who expect nothing in return, that’s amazing,” said Ms. Lutsko. “This donation will make such a difference in the lives of our patients.”
In recognition of their fundraising achievement, Pleasanton Middle School has been designated Champions of Change.
