Penny Pals will kick off Oct. 12 and run through Oct. 23 at Miami Trace Elementary, Cherry Hill Primary and Belle Aire Elementary, as well as Fayette County Head Start.
Students save their pennies (quarters, dimes and nickels) and compete with other classes to raise funds for the United Way of Fayette County. The class that raises the most in each building will receive a monetary prize sponsored by YUSA.
This is a yearly competition between classes that not only raises money, but gives our children a chance to be involved in the process of giving to our community. Huntington Bank and Merchant’s National Bank will be our official change counters for the event.
United Way of Fayette County is kicking off its Penny Pal fundraiser in partnership with YUSA, who is sponsoring the prize for the Fayette County Elementary class that gives the most. The fundraiser will run Oct. 12 through the 23. Pictured here (L to R): Josh Iwamoto, Kelly Steele from YUSA, Debbie Bryant, president of United Way of Fayette County and Ken Rodgers from YUSA
