Gilles-Sweet Elementary School
Ms. Purente's Class
Welcome To Our Classroom's Fundraising Page!
Our school has partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Hero Squad Program to raise funds for blood cancer research and patient support services. Heroes like Madelina (below) never fight cancer alone--she has a Squad that supports her made up of her family, teachers, doctors, and friends. There are Heroes all around the country, just like Madelina, including some in our community that need our classroom's help.
Support the Hero Squad by donating to our classroom's online page.
Thanks to your support, LLS is able to launch new endeavors like The LLS Children's Initiative.
This initiative seeks to accelerate treatments with fewer harmful side effects so that young patients like Madelina not only survive, but thrive, for generations to come.
Participating in this program also helps our students grow valuable out-of-the-classroom life skills.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible. Donations support LLS research, patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services. Visit our webpage often to check our progress, and please consider sharing the link with your friends so that they may donate to our cause as well.
You can also support a specific student. Search for the student’s name* on the left side of the screen to locate their personal fundraising page. Students will earn 'Thank You' gifts by raising funds and receiving donations on their personal page.
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
