Students and Teachers at DJHS Add Philanthropy to the Lesson Plans

FOR THE TEXAN

The student council at DJHS are doing more than learning about helping others, they are putting the lesson into action. DJHS has signed on to participate in the Pennies for Patients School & Youth Program to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) this school year. This program educates children about blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma) while encouraging students and teachers to collect spare change to help those diagnosed with a blood cancer.

“Leukemia is the number one cancer killer of children under 20 and we think it is important for our students to learn the importance of helping kids their age,” says Mrs. Maness STUCO co-sponsor. “One of your family friends is a leukemia survivor. The LLS and Make-A-Wish helped his family tremendously.”
