Last Friday, Saint Norbert Parish Elementary School in Paoli (Chester County) hosted a “Nickels to Knock Out Childhood Cancer” school-wide fundraiser. The event was held on, “National Dress 4 Pediatric Cancer Day.” Students in Pre-k through 8th grades wore yellow shirts to school and came together in the school gymnasium for the fundraiser.
Students were asked to begin collecting nickels on September 15th. All proceeds raised by Saint Norbert students during “Nickels to Knock Out Childhood Cancer,” will be donated to the Go4theGoal Foundation. When the final tally was in, students collected 28,289 nickels which resulted in a donation of $1,414.47.
