Fraternal twins Sam and Clay and their fellow classmates Delaney and Tyler were inspired to make change during October by collecting change with their Penny, Nickel, and Dime Wars fundraiser to benefit the PBCC. The foursome challenged students in every classroom at North Dickinson Elementary (Cumberland County) to compete with other classrooms by bringing in change and small bills from home. Students raised $3,065 on their own, with donations from the community bringing their grand total to $5,865.
Carlisle Regional Medical Center, the Tuckey Companies, the Phillips Group, Giant, and the North Dickinson Elementary School PTO joined in support of the students’ efforts with donations. The classroom that raised the most – Denise Stasyszyn’s combined fourth- and fifth-grade class – was rewarded with a pizza party courtesy of Little Caesars. But the impressive school wide effort was recognized by Dairy Queen with an ice cream party. Thanks to Sam, Clay, Delaney, Tyler and all the students, parents, teachers and staff of North Dickinson Elementary for showing that a little change can go a long way to helping in the fight against breast cancer!
