Jacobson elementary procures an impressive amount of pennies

Students at Jacobson Elementary in Rush City collected donations during the month of February as part of the 22nd Annual Pennies for Patients program, benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Students teamed together, each contributing a little, and the total was an amazing $1,724.56!  The school would like to say a special thanks to Unity Bank for counting all the coins.

“These students serve as an example to all of us through their commitment to helping others,” Kelly Fegley, campaign director at LLS, said.  “Their efforts will help local patients and their families along with funding blood cancer research at the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic.”
