Students and faculty at Mullen High School in Denver, CO are in a “Penny War” to raise money for twin school Meki Catholic Mission School in Meki, Ethopia.
The fundraiser started March 5 with each grade level earning points by placing pennies and dollar bills in their own class level jar. Points are taken away from classes by placing nickels, dimes and quarters in another class level jar. All of the money collected goes to Meki and the level with the most points at the end wins a party.
The battle will continue through early April during Lasallian Heritage Days.
