Harry Hoag Elementary students raise nearly $1,000 for Pennies for Patients

 Students at Harry Hoag Elementary School raised $963 during the Pennies for Patients drive at the school this year. The drive began in March. In three years, students have raised about $3,000.Pennies

“The students are always excited to participate, and they love coming into the office to count the pennies,” said Harry Hoag secretary and organizer Patty Nestler.

“Students from all grades have agreed to sort and roll the money.”

Sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Pennies for Patients asks children to donate spare change in any amount possible to help support programs for leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancer patients and to fund research to find a cure for blood cancers.

Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country.
