Randolph Students Hold Annual Penny Drive

RANDOLPH — Katherine Beaver’s sixth grade class at Randolph Central School recently held their annual Penny Drive to benefit the animals at the Chautauqua County Humane Society.

“My sixth grade class was in charge of running the Penny Drive,” Beaver said. “They wrote announcements, made collection jars and delivered them to classrooms. At the end of our drive, my students collected the penny jars from all over the school. Mrs. Bedell’s classroom helped out by counting the pennies.”

This is the 14th year in a row Beaver’s class has organized and run the Penny Drive.

“My students always look forward to doing this every year and helping out the animals,” Beaver said. “They especially love when you all pick up the pennies and bring special visitors with you.”

This year CCHS staff brought two puppies GQ and Calvin Klein who were adopted shortly after the visit. Learn more about the Chautauqua County Humane Society at spcapets.com.
