Every Penny Makes a Difference at St. Anne Catholic School

Draeden Fagon and Samantha Boyd are two of the many students at St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer who collected and counted pennies in an effort to do their part for the “Pennies for Pediatrics” campaign.

February 5, 2013 - Over the past two weeks, students from JK to grade 8 at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School in Hanmer participated in a fundraising activity as they celebrated "Responsibility", the Catholic Virtue of the month. Students raised $531.21 for “Pennies for Pediatrics” and are very proud of their accomplishment. “Bringing in coins made me feel good to help the kids who need this pool,” said Samantha Boyd, a grade 5 student at the school.
“Pennies for Pediatrics” is a fundraising campaign that raises funds for a therapeutic Snoezelen Pool, a pool with specialty lighting and other sensory stimulation equipment. This pool is used for the treatment of children with autism and other developmental conditions. The St. Anne Catholic School community volunteered to do its part and work with Perkin's Restaurant and Bakery to donate change to “Pennies for Pediatrics.” The students hope that St. Anne Catholic School is making a difference in the lives of other young children in our community.
