For Immediate Release:

The Work-Family Connection Students Collect “A Mile of Pennies” To Help Feed the Hungry

After finding that 16 pennies equal a foot during late spring, the children at The Work-Family Connection After School Enrichment program at Milton Avenue School began collecting "A Mile of Pennies." When school re-opened, the fundraiser continued and will run through to the end of the year to be donated to the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown. The students’ goal is to collect a mile of pennies for the Soup Kitchen; this would equal $844.80! In June of 2012, staff members of the CSK will be invited to Milton to receive the donation. So far the children have collected $42.78.
