Lincoln-Erdman Pennies for Patients Drive a Success
Elementary School students and staff recently held a penny drive for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the
world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding
blood cancer research and providing education and patient services.
Student Council members chose to help this worthwhile organization since
leukemia has touched the lives of several families at Lincoln-Erdman
The Peter Betchkal family decided to help the
school with its penny drive. Betchkal took up a collection in his
office at Kohler Company and raised $445.76. The Lincoln-Erdman penny
drive raised $609.02, giving a grand total of $1.054.78 raised for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
