Abbot Students Raise $2K for Leukemia and Lymphoma Research

As we all know, Abbot is amazing! In just one week, our students raised $2,179.30 in small change for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The Student Council chose the LLS "Pasta for Pennies" campaign as their charitable contribution to our community. Mr. Meyer's first grade class collected the most and will receive a celebratory pasta lunch from The Olive Garden restaurant.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary cancer research agency specifically focused on finding cures and better treatments for blood cancer patients. Because some blood cancers are childhood diseases, this cause is one our students connect with and feel good about donating to. With the help of programs like Pasta for Pennies, more than 1 billion dollars has been invested in research to advance therapies to save lives.
