Lyndon School Students Leading Penny Drive to Help those Affected by Japanese Tsunami
The first graders at the Lyndon School, taught by Mr. Langmead and Ms. Flanagan, carried a sheet of paper taller than some of the kids in the class, down to the school office with the words, "Mr. Ward and Mrs. Tunney, can we have a penny drive to help Japan?"
It hangs on the door outside the school office. With the help of the PTA, the students and faculty at the Lyndon are having a penny drive to help those affected by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Beginning Monday, April 11 to Friday, April 15, the students will be bringing in spare change to not only compete for bragging rights of which grade collects the most money, but to see if the Lyndon School can beat the $2,800 that students raised last year to help the victims of Haiti after an earthquake in 2010.
Anyone wishing to donate their change to help the students, help Japan, can stop by the Lyndon School office at 20 Mount Vernon St., West Roxbury between 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. from April 11-15.
All money donated will go directly to help the victims of Japan.
