These Pennies Really Add Up!
Every penny collected
during the fundraiser is used to support a community need. Students will
research different not-for-profit organizations and select where the raised
funds will be donated. Penny Harvest is an incredible opportunity for
students to come together and practice our school value of community - your
support will help make this year’s fundraiser a success! The process is
easy...the results are meaningful...and the need is there. Together we can make
a difference. On behalf of the students, people, families and organizations
that have been touch by Penny Harvest, we thank you.
