Adventure Kids Care Club Collect Pennies to Buy Toys for Tots
The 4th and 5th grade student members of the Adventure Kids Care Club in St. Louis, MO were given the tools needed. They operated and facilitated a penny drive raising $230.00. The students then went shopping with 2 teachers, Ms. Bergheger and Mrs. Cunningham at the local Target store where each student was given a set spending limit to pick out toys to be purchased with the money raised. This taught the value of the dollar to all involved. The toys were then donated to the Toys for Tots Foundation. US Marine Corps. Sgt. Gavin Lewis came to visit Adventure Kids Care Club to speak to the kids (60) about the foundation, and to give them pins that stated that they had donated to Toys for Tots prior to loading up the toys.
