Lincoln Elementary School recently raised $300 for St. Susan’s Center as part of their annual Coin Wars. Third and fourth graders voted to choose a local charity and for two weeks the entire school collects coins in the cafeteria. The school raised $249.89 and the Lincoln Elementary School PTA rounded the donation up to $300.
“It is really a good thing that we raise money for St. Susan’s because we want people to eat a good meal,” said Lincoln Elementary School second grader, Madalyn Giorgenti. “It is good to help other people.”
The second grade class raised the most donations but St. Susan’s Executive Director, Jeffrey Smith recognizes, and appreciates, the incredible effort made by all the entire school.
“I think it is so nice that at such a young age the students are giving back to their community,” said Mr. Smith. “There is so much need and every little bit helps. We are just so grateful for every donation we receive, including the one from Lincoln School.”
