We began our annual coins for caring project on March 18. Children can bring pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars to school through April 30. The kindergarten/extended day class will then sort, count, roll and tally all of the donations.
This year’s selected charity is Project Hope. The collected funds will be used to purchase items for the “totes of hope” that are delivered to families of hospitalized children at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
Making Coins of Caring Fun
- Consider asking your children to go on a scavenger hunt for coins around your house
- Encourage them to perform simple tasks to earn money to give
Share the fun ways you are encouraging giving to Coins of Caring at your house with us. One of our students earned his donation by picking up litter in his neighborhood, gathering the household trash, placing both in a trash can and then taking it to the curb for pick up. He also helped fold laundry and put it away.
