Pennies add up for Browning students
A campaign to count pennies at Browning to support Leukemia patients has doubled its goal and is still going strong.
Browning Elementary students have raised more than $4,000 through the Pasta for Pennies program.
Initially setting a goal of $1,650 for the effort, the drive in support of Browning kindergarten student Joshua Thomas is asking families to bring in pennies and compile them into classroom bags.
The class that raises the most funds is treated to a free past lunch, courtesy of the Olive Garden.
In its first week, the effort raised $1,600.
With a little help from their friends - the National Honor Society at Henry Ford II High School has contributed nearly $600 - the school has raised more than $4,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
