An “easily forgotten” copper coin was transformed into a “powerful tool for youth action and service” – plus a pot of gold – when big−hearted students from Intermediate School 14 donated the fruits of their Penny Harvest fundraising labors to the Bay Family Center.

The youngsters trekked over to the community care facility, 3154 Emmons Avenue, to present a check for $750 to delighted administrators.

The group was part of a national collective of student and adult beneficiaries who each year organize local Common Cents collection drives that use the neglected resource into ready−to−use funds for their communities. After the pennies have been converted into dollars, the money is transformed into good deeds through the leadership of the Roundtable Philanthropy program.
