In the article "Pennies Count in Fight Against Leukemia" (March 26 issue of Greenfield-West Allis NOW), Mark Schaaf reported about how Glenwood Elementary School, in particular the fourth-grade class, raised $754 for their classmate, Jacob Schlicht, who has been fighting leukemia for about two years.
When I was in fourth grade, I knew I could make a difference with whatever it was that I donated, and I felt good that I was helping others in need. I feel as a 20-year-old college student that I don't have the money or the time I would like to give to organizations such as this.
I feel this article shows how important our younger generation really is to us. If we as a community can instill these actions at a young age, then these actions will be carried over into these kid's adult lives. Meaning, when they are older, they will have a better perspective on caring for others and what it means to be a charitable person.
You go Glenwood Elementary School!
