Hats off to students at Richardson Elementary School in Cuyahoga Falls who are sponsoring their second annual “Pennies for Pies” fundraiser.
“Students bring in loose change from home,” wrote Rebecca Jones, the school’s Market Day coordinator. “Each classroom has a jar to fill with change.
Today, “all change is counted and used to purchase pies to be donated to the Haven of Rest Ministries in Akron. Pies will be delivered to the school Monday, Oct. 22, after 5 p.m.
“Last year students collected over $800 and donated 64 pies to the Haven of Rest … In spite of the difficult economy, students are still bringing in change to help the less fortunate. The pies are purchased from Market Day which donates a percentage back to the school; last year it was $450.
