Miles of Pennies: Benefitting FDCSD Schools One Penny at a Time

April 4, 2019

April 3, 2019, Fort Dodge, IA-  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 April 8- April 26. 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              Green screen, headphones and reading/math intervention materials

Cooper            $1000              Books for small group instruction

Duncombe      $1400              Educational games for indoor recess

Feelhaver        $1000              Makerspace games and toys

Riverside         $500                Headphones

FDMS             $2000              4th to 5th grade transition events

FDSH              $500                Books for building literacy

Scrounge up loose car change, empty out pockets, and look under couch cushions because together, pennies can positively impact Fort Dodge schools!
