All across the country, there are people in need. Some kids in Dublin, Ohio, are trying to change that through Penny Harvest, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to help kids solve problems in their community. Olde Sawmill Elementary (OSE) School in Dublin has been participating in Penny Harvest for the past three years.
During that time, OSE has raised more than $6,500 and donated to six local charities, including Cozy Cat Cottage and Buckeye Ranch and Cozy Cat Cottage. Buckeye Ranch helps kids who have gone through depression or abuse, while Cozy Cat is an animal shelter that is just for cats.
The Penny Harvest Program is divided into three stages. First, students raise money, and Student Leaders get their school excited to help the community. Classes generate causes that they’d like to donate to, come up with a goal, and get going. William Smialek, 11, says, “It’s not every day you get to raise money and know that every cent you get is going to help people. That’s pretty cool.”
