One penny won't buy you much these days, but when that penny has a LOT of other pennies working with it, it's amazing what they can accomplish!

Students at Little Miami Intermediate School raised $1,397 last week in just pocket change during their Penny Wars competition. Proceeds from the competition will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation.

Jenna Valentine's sixth grade class and Beth Ray's fifth grade class raised more than $400 each for the cause. Their classes earned an ice cream party from the LMIS PTO.
