2. 3rd Graders Launch PENNIES for PATIENTS Drive to Help Fight Cancer
 
We need your loose change! The Hillcrest 3rd graders are holding a 3 week-long "Pennies for Patients" fundraising drive, joining the efforts of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. 
 
3rd graders are distributing coin collection boxes throughout the school. You'll find them in classrooms and in the office. Donation boxes will also be available for students to bring home. Please help fill them up! Pennies for Patients runs through Feb. 12 
 
Tax deductible donations can also be made online by clicking the link for the Hillcrest fundraising page: http://events.lls.org/pages/gba/Hillcrest-Elementary-School-Oakland-2018
