Peachtree City Elementary raises over $1,450 with Pennies for Patients

Peachtree City Elementary students and staff collected a total of $1,458.48 during a Pennies for Patients campaign held the first two weeks of March. The money collected goes to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and supports their relentless pursuit of cures for leukemia, lymphoma and meyloma. The two classes raising the most were Krista Hiley’s 4th grade, pictured receiving a silver pennant and Betty Stricklen’s 1st grade, pictured receiving a bronze pennant. The campaign, coordinated by Lori Langbehn, School Nurse, allowed an opportunity for students to use their life skills of empathy, compassion and generosity and be a part of the team in fighting cancer.
