Hubbard students raise funds for teacher battling stage 4 cancer


HUBBARD

Hubbard Elementary School students pulled out all the stops to make their Pennies for Patients fundraiser in April successful.

They were extra motivated because this year’s fundraiser benefits middle-school teacher Jill Hoover, who was diagnosed with stage four cancer two years ago.

“I am beyond blessed to be a part of this community,” Hoover said. “Parents, teachers, students and staff have gone above and beyond to show my family and I love and support.”

The students raised $6,223 throughout the month, with a total of 1,435 pounds of coins.

Robyn Fette’s fourth-grade class raised the most money and won a Chuck E. Cheese party.
