Look what has happened at Unity Elementary School!!

Neal Sims

 The Students at Unity collected - and met their goal - Pennies for Patients. Mrs. Sims and Mrs. Neal kept their end of the bargain made with students who worked hard to collect pennies and both of them KISSED A PIG!!!

Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!
Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society.
