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.
Thank you to all the schools and community members who participated in Pennies for Pies 2020! This year we tried something new; Pennies for Pies ran concurrent w/ Project Thanksgiving for the weeklong collection period, and it was a success! This year has brought us all some interesting obstacles, some of which we were concerned may affect our fundraising opportunities. Sure enough, our Wildcat community took those obstacles in stride and did a FANTASTIC job bringing in, $844.78 all of which goes directly to the delicious pies we provide for the Thanksgiving baskets! Our top raising school was, Broad Street Elementary moving up from 2nd place in 2019! Second place was our lovely middle schoolers at MMS, who’s student council took sole charge of collection for Pennies for Pies and Project Thanksgiving!
Thank you to all of the schools and offices that helped us raise the funds to make this possible for our less fortunate families in the community. A special thank you to the residents of Winding Hills, who also collected donations for Project Thanksgiving, and thank you Nadia Renoll and Noelle Strubczewski for being 2 of the 3 donation locations in the neighborhood.
