In the Pennies for Patients campaign, the class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party. Prizes such as computers,electronics and sports equipment are presented to the top schools in each area. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society's North Carolina Chapter in 1995. Hillwood has a guess speaker to come in and talk to all the classes about the event of raising money.
The teachers give us a box from Pennies for Patients. The box is for money, we put money in the box like pennies,nickles,dimes, and quarters and maybe checks. when all of are little tiny box's are full we dump all the money into are teachers big white box. which ever class raises the most money wins a flag first place wins a gold flag second place wins a silver flag last place wins the Bronze flag. To win first place you have to raise 300 dollars and second place has to raise 200 dollars and last place raises 100 dollars.
