Students learn how pennies can save lives

Students at Jacobson Elementary are participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients program, a community service project where students donate their spare change to fund blood cancer research and patient aid programs.  Pennies for Patients is one of the Society’s National School and Youth Programs.  It has a double benefit in that it allows students to develop compassion and learn the value of helping others while they are working for a cause that helps save lives.  Jacobson Elementary students will be collecting money for the Pennies for Patients program Jan. 28th through Feb. 15th.  Those interested in making a donation can go to the school’s link:; collection containers will be in the elementary office, or contact Kim at 358-4724.
