Penny Drive for St. Jude Children's Hospital

Taylor, a fourth grade student, wrote a letter to Mr. Taylor asking him if she could start a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital. She mentioned that she wanted to help other children and was interested in doing a Penny Drive. The staff was excited about the idea and Taylor created a letter that went home explaining the drive.

Below is the information about Taylor sent home.

Dear Nisley Families,

We will be having a penny drive for the St. Jude Children's Hospital. St. Jude Children's Hospital is a place where doctors take in families free of charge with children who have diseases such as A.I.D.S. and Cancer. The fundraiser will begin Monday, April 16th and end Friday April 27th. The jars will be located in front of the office. The grade level who raises the most amount of money will earn a pizza party.

Remember, every penny counts!

Thank You for all your support,

Taylor S., 4th Grader
