Donate to support StuCo & The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The BCHS Student Council is participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients Campaign. Last year we helped raise $1,310.43 in three weeks. This year we hope to raise $1,600.00 by February 28th.
During this program, students will collect money to support LLS’s mission: to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Students will learn about service, leadership, philanthropy, and how to make a difference by changing peoples’ lives.
BCHS has an online giving page that students, parents, and faculty can share with friends and family. http://events.lls.org/pages/txg/Bay-City-High-School-2018
For more information on the Pennies for Patients Program, please visit http://www.studentseries.org
