Roanoke Avenue Elementary School students raised $2,110.87 to contribute to Pennies For Patients, an organization that benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the school district announced.
Janine Weber’s fourth grade class won the contest by brining in the most pennies.
Millions of dollars have been raised since the mid-’90s through the charity. The funds are collected by elementary, middle school and high school students from across the country during a three-week period.
