The annual HOPEsudbury Pennies for HOPE drive is underway at Sudbury Public Schools through October. Students can put coins in collection jars in their elementary school lobby and in Curtis Middle School homerooms.
Excitement about the collection is generated at Curtis by a competition to see which homeroom can collect the most pennies. In past years the winning homeroom was rewarded with a movie afternoon. Curtis homerooms will collect pennies the last two weeks in October.
Funds raised through the Pennies for HOPE Drive support The HOPE Fund which provides Sudbury residents with emergency funding for unexpected financial need, and the Beyond our Borders program.
Pennies for HOPE will be presented live on SudburyTV November 2rd during the HOPEsudbury Telethon & Auction Children’s Hour at 5pm. The Telethon will be held at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School from noon until 10PM.
The Telethon features performances by talented Sudbury residents of all ages and an Auction (now with online bidding) of more than 200 items and services donated by local businesses and residents.
HOPEsudbury is a grassroots non-profit organization designed to engage Sudbury citizens from all walks of life in efforts to provide humanitarian aid to people in need. For more information go to hopesudbury.org.
