Community comes together for LLS fundraiser

Local honor high school senior, Olivia Blake, hosted a week of “pennies for patients” thru the LLS foundation recently. Realizing that her week of collecting would fall during election, when school would be closed, she came up with the idea to collect at the election site. This turned out to be very successful raising over $1,000 through school students and community coming together for this very important event. Blake has a place in her heart for this cancer, her grandfather fought blood cancer for 10 years so she knows what this “fight for life” means and yes, even pennies can make a difference.
