Common Cents, the creators of the Penny Harvest, has announced the 18th Annual Penny Harvest kick-off. Over 1,000 schools and 500,000 students nationwide will go on a massive penny hunt to put those pennies to use.
I have written about the Penny Harvest Field and marveled at the large box of pennies on display at Rockefeller Center in New York City. It is an awesome site on television, but I hope to visit in person.
Last year, the Penny Harvest raised $677,955.99, including $20,000 from passers-by in Rockefeller Plaza. When I make my visit, I will bring my bottle of pennies to add to this year’s Penny Field. Besides, it gives me an excuse to visit my home town!
