Caring Coins project for the Philippines raises over $1200
The schools in the Piedmont responded to the need by collecting coins for the American Red Cross relief effort in the Philippines. Students for a week and a half brought their coins into the school to see what it would add up to. Well it added up to a significant amount. On December 5th principals from the Piedmont district handed a check to Shelia Crunkleton of the American Red cross in the amount of $1,282.63.
We are grateful to the students and parents in our community who have stepped forward once again in this outreach project to help in the relief effort.
