Miles of Pennies: Benefitting FDCSD Schools One Penny at a Time
A penny might not mean a lot to one person’s bank account, but for the Fort Dodge Community School District pennies will lead to new educational resources. Miles of Pennies, an annual school fundraising campaign, has proven just how far a penny can go.
This year Miles of Pennies will run from May 1-5. Miles of Pennies challenges students and staff at each school to collect loose change in order to meet their fundraising goal. Each school building keeps 100 percent of their funds raised, and will receive a $100 bonus from the Fort Dodge Community Schools Foundation if they reach their goal. Building administrators indicate what the funds will support.
School Goal To Be Used For
Butler $1500 Play Equipment for Recess
Cooper $1200 Book Vending Machine or Playground Updates
Duncombe $1600 Books
Feelhaver $1000 Playground Updates
ECC $1000 Recess Equipment
FDMS $2000 Transition events
Scrounge up loose car change, empty out pockets, and look under couch cushions because together, pennies can positively impact Fort Dodge schools! Anyone wishing to contribute can drop donations off at the Central Office.
