Pennies for Patients

For several years Hazelbrook students have annually collected funds to aide in research for people touched by blood cancer. We call it "Pennies for Patients" and it is sponsored by the Olive Garden, who calls it "Pasta for Pennies". To help increase enthusiasm our school has turned it into a competition between Hawk Time groups or "Homerooms". My Hawk Time has been actively involved to raise funds for this worthy cause. Many of us have personal experiences with cancer. My own brother died from myeloma, and one of Hazelbrook's instructional assistants was just diagnosed with leukemia. This is the last week for fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Hawk Time that raises the most money will get a catered lunch from Olive Garden. If you feel so inclined please feel free to contribute to this worthy organization by sending in funds with your child, or by using the online address below.
