Events Pennies for Prevention By eastwoodpta October 18, 2018 October 18, 2018 October 2018 Newsletter Volunteers Needed for Red Ribbon Week 2 Comments Gesine October 18, 2018 at 11:08 am 1 month ago Hi PTA, Where is the money going to? Which organization? Could you please share more detailed informations? Thank you for your work and efforts! Best, Gesine eastwoodpta October 18, 2018 at 11:46 am 1 month ago Hi, Gesine: Thank you for your question. All money collected is taken to Irvine City Hall for counting. The money goes to the Irvine Prevention Coalition, and in return they give us back $1 for every pound of pennies we collect. More information regarding the Irvine Prevention Coalition can be found here: http://irvinepreventioncoalition.com/about/ Also, one pound of pennies is roughly $1.80, so the school is making back 55% of what is collected 😊 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
