Project Pennies for Pies
The goal of this project is to collect pennies and other coins in order to provide pies for families for OW's Thanksgiving baskets.
Project Pennies for Pies Thank You
I want to thank all of the schools and community members who participated in Pennies for Pies, which is a part of Project Thanksgiving, which allows us to provide a delicious Thanksgiving meal to the families in our Wildcat community in need! This year we raised $1,294.62!!!! WAY TO GO WILDCATS! We were able to provide 225 pies to Project Thanksgiving and even a little extra to contribute to the Operation Wildcat fund.
Our top raising school in the district this year was Mrs. Ecker's team at Northside Elementary; they were able to raise $461.62. The students competed in a 2-week competition, in which each class had their own donation jar, and at the end of that 2 week period the top raising class would be awarded a pajama and doughnut day!! The top fund-raising class was Mrs. Rudy's 2nd grade whom were able to raise $95.21!!!
Our second top raising school was Broad Street Elementary, these students participated in a weeklong competition where each classrooms donation jar was weighed at the end of the week to determine the winner.
Our third top raiser was our community team at Delta Dental! Delta Dental participated in a month long two team competition. I want to thank all of schools, administrative offices, and community members for their continued support and contribution to Pennies for Pies! I look forward to working with all of you next year and together I am sure we will beat our goal of $1,300! Thank you again for all your help and support.
Happy Holidays! -Jaclyn Gingrich
