Making a Big Difference with Small Change

Students of Academy Street Elementary School recently attended an assembly in which members of the Peer Leaders group presented a check in the amount of $283 to Patricia Conway, a representative for the Friends of Karen charity. The amount reflected the total sum of money collected by the students during the Small Change Drive held over the course of the month. For six years, the Peer Leaders of Academy Street have encouraged students to participate in the Small Change program. In that period of time, the students of Academy Street have collected over $3,500 for Friends of Karen to be used to benefit critically ill children and their families.
