5th Grade Make Change Drive

Make Change for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital

This year the Zervas 5th graders are raising money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, an organization that helps to advance cures and prevention of children’s diseases through research and treatment. No child is ever denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. For over 50 years, St. Jude’s has been finding cures and saving children, and their groundbreaking research has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% in 1962 to more than 80% today.

One way that we are going to be fundraising is by placing bins in Zervas classrooms. This is called the Make Change Drive and the 5thgrade would really appreciate it, if you would bring change in to your classrooms to contribute. This change can be brought in anytime from March 18th  – March 29th. Our goal is to raise $750 school wide, but we also asked each class to set a goal. Some classes set a $50 goal, while others set a goal of $100 or more.
