Penny Power: New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale
Penny Power is a fun Mennonite Central Committee initiative where people of all ages collect spare change and bring it to their local Mennonite relief sale. This year some creative folks constructed a board with small pegs that caught the coins as people dropped them through the upper slot. The upper and lower images reveal the progress from the beginning to the end of the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale. The crazy thing is that all the loose change is counted and rolled by hand by a team of volunteers. All money collected goes toward MCC's local and global initiatives. Your small change can lead to big change.
