See a Penny...

Jun28

… pick it up. All day long you’ll have good luck.

 

If this is true, Penny Harvest students will have a lifetime of luck. And so will PAWS, the recipient of six Penny Harvest grants totaling $2,433!

Penny-Harvest-2012-Adams-ElementaryThroughout the year, schools across the country collect tons of pennies. Literally, tons. One by one pennies are brought into the schools by each student. While the collection continues, each student body decides what issues in the community concern them the most and elect students to serve as their Penny Harvest Roundtable.

The Roundtable then researches organizations within their community that are working to address such issues. The students call, invite and interview representatives to determine which organizations they most want to support. Issues concerning the students range from homelessness to the environment to animals.

Thank you to all our Penny Harvest supporters who not only picked up pennies, but passed them on. You have all made a big difference to the lives of animals here at PAWS.

A great big thank you to:

  • Adams Elementary
  • Eckstein Middle School
  • John Rogers Elementary
  • Montlake Elementary
  • Schmitz Park Elementary 
  • Viewlands Elementary
