Students in Galveston ISD's Rosenberg Elementary School donated more than $500 to support UTMB Health's mammography programs. Under the direction of teacher Lonnetta Walker (right), the fundraising effort collected loose change totaling $548.46 -Dubbed "Coins of Hope, Faith, and Love" by Walker. The class with the most coins was recognized and celebrated with a s'mores party.

 "The students were amazing," said Walker. "I saw acts of kindness and love that I haven't seen in a long time. They emptied their piggy banks, snack money, etc., to help another person. It was truly inspiring and humbling." Thank you, Ms. Walker and Rosenberg Elementary students, for your generous donation to UTMB Health's breast cancer care.
