It’s truly amazing what young people can contribute to society, but for them to make their contributions, we need to make ours. The creation and operation of Common Cents’ programs, including the Penny Harvest, takes money and manpower, and that’s where you can help.

Common Cents must annually create and distribute hundreds of teachers with curriculum guides, professional development sessions and hundreds of thousands of boxes of supplies (collection bags and sacks, badges, leader pins and family materials) in order to ensure that the students are able to integrate their good deeds into their standard education and provide this program free of cost to all schools. Here’s how you can help!
