FHS GIVE & The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Elizabeth Clark

Last year, senior Jessica Reno started a club at FHS in hopes of giving back to several charities. In the past, they have donated goods to hurricane victims and raising money for other charities. Their current goal is to raise $20,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, as apart of a nationwide campaign. From their club, Jessica Reno, Tori Chicklis, and Kaylee Myers have all been nominated for the Students of the Year Competition, but the entire club has been taking part in the mission.  The competition lasts 7 weeks from January 17 and March 1. Already, the group has raised $4,000 to go towards the society.

For more fundraising, they hope to host smaller fundraisers (bake sales, restaurant nights, raffles etc) as well as hosting a 3 on 3 basketball tournament for grades 4-8.

What is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society?

They are the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancer. They’ve invested more than 1.2  billion dollars in groundbreaking research, taking them one step closer to finally ending blood cancer. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, while also improving the quality of lives for patients and their families.
