Ever wonder what you can do with those extra pennies lying around in your couch, bookbag or computer drawer? Well, why not donate them to Penny Harvest?

Even if you donate a couple of pennies a day, they add up. Each year, our school raises several hundred dollars for different local charities, according to Susan Lang, a teacher who runs the Penny Harvest program at our school.

We are happy to donate, and it makes cents to help others.
