Last fall the students of PS 112 in Long Island City participated in the Penny Harvest organized by our friends from Common Cents. Click here to watch a video from The Today Show of all 100,000,000 pennies collected by NYC schoolchildren.
This week the students presented Mount Sinai Hospital in Queens with a check for $1,000 and specified that the donation go towards breast cancer research. Mount Sinai donated plastic piggie banks to all of the children who participated in the fundraising.
The City Year New York team below ran the Penny Harvest for the school and were on hand for this week’s assembly.
