From September 23rd to the 27th, Spartan Youth Service’s Helping Hands committee held its annual Penny Wars fundraiser for homecoming week at Memorial. Competition arose between all four grades to be the grade that would have the most pennies and a few numbers of dollar bills and other coins in their jar. Many had brought in bags filled with pennies to help their grade and even twenty dollar bills to sabotage others!
After five dynamic days of Spartans donating money toward the jars of their choice, a total of $486 was made from the fundraiser to donate to Memorial’s food bank! Seniors won with the most pennies, while Sophomores, Freshmen, and Juniors came in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively!
