Taylorville Schools Raise Money for Lung Association


(TAYLORVILLE) — During the week of May 9-13, Taylorville Elementary Schools participated in the Change Makes a Difference project and Turquoise Takeover to raise money and awareness for the American Lung Association. Students were asked to bring in different coins each day. Monday was pennies, Tuesday nickels, Wednesday dimes, Thursday quarters and Friday dollars. The class in each school that raised the most money won a pizza party. Students were also encouraged to wear turquoise for LUNG FORCE’s annual Turquoise Takeover, which seeks to raise awareness for lung cancer.
