Story by Kara Lynn, ITRT at Pearson Elementary School
The students and staff of HM Pearson Elementary presented a check for $1107.74 to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. Each day in October, students brought in pennies for Breast Cancer Awareness. Mrs. Leavell’s 5th-grade class, which brought in the most, celebrated by covering Principal Mark Marchinetti and Assistant Principal Jamie Edgar with silly string!
The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation serves Fauquier and Loudoun Counties. With this donation, they are able to supply baskets to post-surgery patients to help make recovery a bit more comfortable.
