A Phoenix Burning

Donation Season

So, one of our local schools collects change from the students for three weeks each year to donate to our local Soup Kitchen. Each year, the school raises more and more as the event becomes bigger and bigger. Last year they donated $2300.
This year I have spent four of the donation days counting and rolling coins. Today was the biggest yet…it was a PTA Matching Funds Day, so we expected the take to be large…we didn’t expect it to be huge! We collected over $800, over $700 of it in change!!! (All this from a school with a population of about 360 students.)  That translates into a $1600 donation just for today! Three of us spent the entire day counting and rolling, but I couldn’t resist stopping for a minute to take some photos. 🙂
