Petal Elementary raises money for students

For the past three weeks, Petal Elementary has been working on a special project with some help from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The society's school and youth program helped the students raise money for Pennies for Patients - which benefits children with leukemia. Three Petal Elementary students have been diagnosed with leukemia. Thursday, $1,000 in pennies was given to Kim Lott's class, who teaches two of the students.

If you would like to make a donation, send a check to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the address is 408 Fontaine Place, suite 104, Ridgeland, MS 39157 - or go online to schoolandyouthdot.org/ms.

Today is the final day of the Pennies for Patients drive, and the school would like to encourage parents and children to donate.
