Kids Raise Pennies For Kids

When it comes to helping others in need every penny counts. That's why students at Brown Elementary started a penny drive for the Children's Miracle Network. They raised more than $1,900.00 and celebrated Tuesday with a Valentine's Day sock hop.

One Lubbock mother attended the event to tell students how CMN helped her own son survive a liver surgery when he was 8-weeks-old. Ann Griffith said, "We are so thankful and grateful to people in our community who've given so generously to such a wonderful cause."

As NewsChannel 11 has shown you, for more than two decades every penny, raised here, stays here to provide special equipment and services for the Children's Hospital at UMC.
