Brooklyn, NY – In keeping with its Twinning tradition, Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School is once again having an ongoing Penny War. Loughlin’s student government is a House System and the competition follows that model. All change and bills, except $1 bills, are positive points (dollar bills are negative points), and students are being strategic in where they donate so their house wins. All money donated goes to support BLMHS’s Twin, St. Mary’s Nyeri.
In addition, the school will have a dress down day, and the Lions’ Rugby Team is facilitating a fundraiser where they are selling t-shirts through www.booster.com and splitting the donations between the team and St. Mary’s. Thanks to Lindsey Pamlanye, who, as a Lasallian Volunteer, is Loughlin’s Campus Ministry Service Program Coordinator, coordinating the Lenten Twinning efforts.
