RBHS HOSA organizes Pennies for Leukemia

By Brandi Miller for the FCT


Red Bay High School HOSA is widely-regarded as being one of the most active organizations on campus. HOSA sponsors assemblies, holds rallies and is always busy doing something for the betterment of the student body. With their latest project, they are extending their efforts to help people beyond just the walls of RBHS.

“HOSA students have been extremely busy working on a fundraiser for the Pennies for Leukemia society,” said HOSA sponsor Dr. Kay Hargett. “The Leukemia and Lymphoma national service project is an opportunity for students not only to help save lives of blood cancer patients but provides the opportunity for students to help those who are in need.”

This community project is one the RBHS HOSA participates in each year. The project helps not only blood cancer patients but also those with other various blood disorders, such as leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

The homeroom that raises the most money over $500 will be given a lunch sponsored by Olive Garden restaurant. Hargett said that anyone who would like to help RBHS HOSA Chapter with this important project can make a donation at the Red Bay High School office. Donations will be taken until the end of January.
