During February, the Little Sprouts Community Preschool conducted the "Lots of Love Penny Drive." Throughout the month, the boys and girls were challenged to see which group could bring in the most pennies.
On Thursday, Feb. 28, the afternoon pre-kindergarten group walked the pennies to the U.S. Bank in Cedaredge, where the bank staff showed each child how the coins are mechanically sorted, counted and bagged.
In the end, the boys gathered $95.67 while the girls collected $50.52.
On their return trip back to the preschool, a check was presented to the unsuspecting volunteers at the Surface Creek Food Bank by pre-kindergarteners Tate Fischer and Rachel Brooks. The children received a rousing round of applause and a package of M&Ms from food bank volunteers.blog comments powered by Disqus
