Give a penny, lend a hand

A little bit of change can add up.

Students at Davidson Elementary School found out that little bit of change can turn into $12,306.03, to be exact.

The elementary school helped raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients program, with proceeds going to help fund blood cancer research and aid patients.

The students at Davidson Elementary have participated in the program for five years and have collected about $25,000 total throughout the years.

But with this year’s drive total, Davidson Elementary raised the greatest amount of money collected by any elementary, middle, or high school in the state of North Carolina in the history of the Pennies for Patients program, according to the program.
