Hillwood Raises Money for the Leukemia Society
Every year Hillwood School raises money for the Leukemia Society in an event called " Pennies for Patients." This year we raised $1317.90, and earned a pizza party, (which we unfortunately never had.) We raised the money by bringing in unused pennies and other coins and bills. Next year we hope to raise more money.
The Leukemia Society goes to 240 schools from May to June to raise money and find cures for brain and other cancers. It'd good to know that our money we raised is going to a good cause.
