For over two centuries the penny’s design has symbolized the spirit of the nation, but never more nobly than at the Lake Mills Middle School. After completing their penny push fundraiser, from January 8th â€“ January 17th, Art Instructor Judy Schwecke, along with her fifteen, 8th grade advisory students have turned thousands of idle pennies into real dollars and happily contributed their gift of $655.10 to baby Gavin’s campaign.
Our appreciation for all of your kindness and enthusiasm is boundless. Your spirit of generosity inspires, truly, for as Margaret Thatcher so eloquently stated, “Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth.”
Thank you, each of you, for bringing change to the world of sweet baby Gavin. Thank you for your humanity. Your hearts are all quite special and we remain endlessly grateful.
