INTERACT NEWS – The Pennies for Patients representative came to talk about the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. We will begin collecting pennies on March 6th to benefit cancer research. We made $677 from the art sale which benefits Heifer International. We are going to buy a stove, chicks, rabbits, lama, a goat, and honey bees. We also are able to send two girls to school with the money. Thank you to everyone who purchased art.
