Pennies for Patients
Pennies for Patients is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience making a difference through teamwork - working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight against blood cancers like leukemia. This will mark the 9th year that Thomas E. Kerns has participated in this event.
We will be collecting different coins on different days. Students who participate by bringing in their loose change will get to dress based on the theme of that day! Although the event does not begin until January 5th, 2015, it will run through the end of the month, and you can donate at any time with any amount by following the link above. Just click on the picture and it will take you to the page for Thomas E. Kerns donation page. Money that is donated will go towards research for cures. If you do make a donation, make sure to include your students name and his/her homeroom teacher.
