HEBRON - Jackson Intermediate School is having a fundraiser for the Pennies for Patients program benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Central Ohio.

They are raising $300 per class with a $4,000 school goal. Jamie and Joyce Bowman helped third grader Corey Bowman of Jessica Fry's class raise more than $400. Jamie and Joyce are Corey's mother and grandmother, respectively. The Bowmans thanked VFW Post 1388, Dr. Signs, The Beacon, and Bowman family and friends for their contributions.

Last year Lakewood High School, and Hebron and Jackson elementary schools raised more than $10,000. Jackson raised $3,800.

Special events for the children who donated money this year included wear clothing inside out day; wear a hat to school day, and crazy hair day. Donations continue to be accepted.
