The Helping Hands Committee is pleased to share that this year’s Pennies for Patients drive was successful–BSGE advisories raised $2047.59! A special commendation to Diana Nikkolos’ 9th grade advisory who raised just over $500. Enjoy the pizza and ice cream party–it was well earned. Juanita Kumar’s 8th grade advisory came in second and will receive a pizza party as well. All donations will be given to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in order to aid with cancer research and medical care for children living with leukemia and lymphoma.
We would also like to announce our final Blood Drive sponsored by the NY Blood Center on Tuesday, June 4th from 8:00am-2:00pm. We hope that you will find time to make a donation as NYC copes with a severe blood shortage in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. If you are available to make a donation, please contact
