Pennies for Patients


Boxes were sent home for students to collect spare change for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients. 

Boxes are due back February 13, 2015.

Direct Donation is an easy and convenient fundraising option and if every Westwood family could donate $25 by March 1st we would be able to completely eliminate our Spring Fundraiser.   

So why not make a Direct Donation today?
