Pennies for Puerto Rico

The Girls on the Run (GOTR) team at Polo Road is sponsoring a Community Impact Project.  The project is Pennies for Puerto Rico and it will positively impact those who live in Puerto Rico and have suffered much devastation as a result of Hurricane Maria.  The girls have demonstrated a sincere passion for connecting our communities and for helping others; and several of the GOTR team members actually have family members who live in Puerto Rico!

In order to make their efforts a success, here's what GOTR is asking of you.....

  • Gather any spare change you have lying around and are willing to donate.
  • Turn in change to homeroom teachers.
  • Take pride in knowing that you have demonstrated the Character Trait of Compassion by helping others in need.    

Along with the sense of pride students will be able to take in knowing they gave from the heart, the grade level that collects the most change will receive a small treat to thank them for their heartfelt efforts.  Money will be accepted Tuesday, November 14 through Monday, November 20.  No amount is too small and every penny will count.  We therefore hope that all Explorers will find a way to participate and make this a grand effort.
