The Agapè Centre received rolls and rolls of pennies daily during their penny drive which recently ended with a draw for an IPOD. ComputerSense Cornwall graciously donated an 8GB Ipod Touch and the lucky winner Amanda Chaulk-Hicks was overjoyed with her prize.
“With pennies on their way out, this was a good way to get everyone in the community who had pennies lying around to donate them to the Agapè Centre. Every little bit helps us feed families in need.” said Alyssa Blais, Executive Director of the Agapè Centre
The pennies collected will provide more than 300 children with healthy school snacks from Agapè’s food bank. The Agapè Centre and its clients appreciate the community’s generous support of the penny drive.
