From March 6-15, 2018, Tarkio R-I students will have the opportunity to learn firsthand the powerful feeling that comes from helping others. Tarkio FCCLA is sponsoring Pennies for Patients, a service learning program in which students collect spare change to help children with blood cancer. Nickels, dimes, quarters, bills and checks (made payable to LLS) are gratefully accepted! Each grade level will have a collection box at the elementary. The class with the most donations will receive a pajama day!
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. By raising funds, the school helps families who need LLS’s Patient Financial Aid program. Yearly, this can help pay for medicines, the doctor visits, or other treatment-related ex­penses. Please clean out your cars, couches, and laundry rooms for this great cause!
