PHOTOS: Sheridan Hills Student Council Collects More Than $2,300 For Charity

Sheridan Hills' Pennies for Patients raises thousands of dollars for cancer patients.

The Student Council raised more than $2,300 for the Pennies for Patients education program.

The students selected Pennies for Patients as this year's service project and had three weeks to collect the money, according to Tricia Thompson, second grade teacher at Sheridan Hills. All the money was donated by Sheridan Hills students and collection began after a school kick-off event Feb. 25 and collection ended March 17.

The school thanks for helping count all the change.

Enjoy the photos!

Dennis - Thanks for your contributions too! Carrie - What a great project for kids to get into, right? Great job to the students at the Richfield Dual Language School and any other Richfield school who took part in the collections.

Pennies for Patients? You are awesome! Go RDLS. Pennies for puppies, soon for the Humane Society. Grandbaby will be walking, with my daughter. Not sure of the date, it is soon. Google Golden Valley Humane Society.
