ROCKFORD (WREX) — Spectrum School brings in more than $500 in coins in November for “Pennies for Patients,” sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).
The school brought in a total of $536.81 worth of coins, including 18,391 pennies. The school gathered the coins in a bathtub that usually serves as a reading space in a classroom.
The school’s three top donors, Calum Scroggins, Declan Scroggins and Felix Davis, spent more than two hours feeding a coinstar machine at a Walmart earlier this week. By doing that, the donations can directly go to the LLS without any fees.
Overall the school collected $746.81.
