Donate to Stillmeadow's Pennies for Patients Campaign

Keep collecting pennies and other loose change to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients Campaign! Students can return their filled "Pennies for Patients" boxes to school until Friday, February 1.

In addition to collecting Pennies for Patients, friends and families can make tax-deductible donations online via Stillmeadow's fundraising page.

This is the ninth year that Stillmeadow is participating in this program. Remember, every penny, nickel, dime, quarter or dollar donated will help save a life.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. 
Bingo Night is Friday, February 8th

Please join us for Bingo Night and help us raise money for the 5th grade, the Class of 2019!

This is the most profitable fundraiser for our graduating class. The money raised will help to offset each student’s individual cost for their class trip to NYC where they will see the Broadway show “WICKED” and go to a restaurant for lunch. 

We are looking for volunteers to help the night of the event. In addition, we will be holding a raffle of themed baskets. Any raffle basket donations would be GREATLY appreciated! Please click here to sign up

To register for Bingo, please fill out this form and return with payment to your child's classroom. Please pay with a check when possible.
