The Robbins Lane School Student Council held a fundraiser in January for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Every Wednesday in the month was designated “Spirit Day,” and for the first week students were invited to wear pajamas and bring in pennies for the patients. Students wore bright neon clothes and donated nickels on the second Wednesday, and put on crazy socks and deposited quarters in the school’s collection boxes the third week. For the finale, students wore team jerseys to show what great work they can do when everyone works together. On that day, dimes and dollars were brought to the classrooms. The total money raised by Robbins Lane during this campaign was $3,018.

On March 6, Kerianne Stein, a representative from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, came to Robbins Lane to speak with the Student Council and explain how the monies raised for LLS are used. Last year’s donations, dedicated for research, resulted in the development of 18 new medications to help patients to recover from these illnesses.

The Robbins Lane Student Council would like to thank the entire Robbins Lane community for helping to make this project such a huge success.
