Galm is currently collecting "loose change" donations for the Olive Garden Pasta for Pennies fundraiser until March 8, 2013. Money collected will go to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Olive Garden’s Pasta for Pennies is a national fundraising program in partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and more than three million student participants. Since 1994, the program has raised more than $53 million to support the fight against blood-related cancers, help fund important life-saving initiatives and provide critical services to patients and their families.
Each year, schools choose a three-week period when students fill collection jars in their classrooms with spare change. The top fundraising class at each participating school receives a pasta party from their local Olive Garden restaurant. In the lead right now is Mrs. Compean's class, with Ms. Garcia and Mrs. Rehfeld close behind! Check back on March 8 to find out the big winner here at Galm!
