Two Grade 8 students from Westview School recently brought the Pennies for Hope campaign, which benefits the Kids Help Phone, to their school.
Kristina Williams and Emma Anderson supplied jars to each classroom at Westview, and collected 7,871 pennies in total. The Grade 6 classroom raised the most money by contributing 1,889 pennies, and earned themselves a free gym period.
Kristina and Emma counted and sorted the pennies into $25 bags and deposited the pennies at Estevan's BMO branch. BMO has been collecting discontinued pennies for the Kids Help Phone through Pennies for Hope.
