On Thursday, February 15th, The Chipotle Mexican Grill on 86th Street here in Indianapolis participated in the Pennies For Patients Campaign. (More about the Campaign is below.) Our Club Members, if they ate there, just had to mention that they were “Here For LLS” and Chipotle would donate 50% of its proceeds to the campaign. This actually went well beyond just our club.but our club members were happy to participate and give back!!!Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!
Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society.
In the Pennies for Patients campaign, the class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party. Prizes such as computers, electronics and sports equipment are presented to the top schools in each area. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society’s North Carolina Chapter in 1995.
