Helping Homeless Pets One Penny at a Time
Pennies for Paws is an annual KHS fundraiser for schools. Recognizing the natural bond between children and pets, many area schools and groups have added Pennies for Paws to their yearly curriculum. Teaching the importance of being humane, environmentally conscious citizens is a worthwhile and rewarding task.
This is often the first experience for many children in volunteering or giving to charity. By collecting spare pennies, nickels, and dimes, they learn that even the most humble of gestures will make a huge difference in their community.
- Suggested by a USD 259 teacher, "Finish your Pennies for Paws fundraising week with a Valentines Day Puppy Love classroom party!"
- Middle Schools & High Schools - Make it a math challenge! Determine how many pennies a 5 gallon jug can hold.
- Make a display wall featuring adopted pets from teachers & staff in your school.
