CMS Holds Pennies for Patients CampaignOver the last three weeks, students at Camden Middle School have been raising money for the Pennies for Patients Campaign. The Pennies for Patients campaign directly benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (The LLS). The LLS mission is to Cure Leukemia, Lymphoma and other blood cancers and improve quality of life of patients and their families.
CMS’s Pennies for Patients campaign, organized by the 5/6 and 7/8 Student Council, has had a record year! Rallying around our own Mrs Carpenter, currently winning her 3rd battle with Leukemia, we collected money each week throughout the month of March. Pennies, dimes, quarters and cold hard cash - we took it all and came to an incredible total. Camden middle school raised a record breaking $2,777.56 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, reminding us all of the spirit and generosity that makes Camden so special.
