St. Jude's Penny Drive - "Quest for a Million Pennies"

National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) and its affiliate members unite in their "Quest for a Million Pennies" to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital,– the premier center for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. In support of the lifesaving efforts of St. Jude, members of NALFO are committed to raise funds and awareness for this notable cause.  Since 2004, OPBSI has taken the leadership role in organizing this effort.  Through this concerted effort, we have been fortunate to raise over $35,000.
