Hurffville First-Graders Donate $3,625.69 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Never underestimate the power of a penny nor the spirit of those who are soliciting it for charity. Hurffville Elementary first-grade students learned very quickly that loose change most definitely adds up when their week-long coin drop yielded $3,625.69 in an incredible community service project. All told and in addition to cash donations, the students collected 31,864 pennies, 5,979 nickels, 7,931 dimes and 6,516 quarters. The monies were donated through the coin cash machine at the Acme Supermarket on Egg Harbor Road directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
