 Pennies for Patients


Dear Benjamin Banneker Middle School families,

This year our school participated in the Pennies for Patients campaign to help “fund the fight” to end blood cancer and improve the lives of those still living with their disease. Thank you to all the students who have collected coins and are helping us raise money towards this important mission.

I wanted to remind everyone that our school’s Pennies for Patients online giving page is still available for those who would like to make a donation or share the link with friends and relatives.

To visit or share our online giving page please go to:

Did you know that a donation of…

$50 helps fund LLS educational booklets for healthcare providers and their patients.

$100 helps fund the Patti Robinson Kaufmann First Connection Program, a peer-to-peer program that matches newly diagnosed patients and their families with trained volunteers.

$150 helps fund general lab supplies for one week to help LLS-funded researchers conduct laboratory work needed to develop blood cancer treatments.

$250 helps support the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program, which helps eligible patients with qualifying diagnoses pay their insurance premiums and meet co-pay obligations.

$500 helps defray the costs of treatment-related travel for a patient.


On behalf of LLS and the patients they serve, thank you for your support of Benjamin Banneker Middle School Pennies for Patients!
