Pennies for pies helps teach our youngest citizens the importance of giving back by partnering with Loaves and Fishes Community Services to provide pies to less fortunate families over the holidays.
Kids bring in pennies and other loose change, which is collected to purchase the pies.
The event kicked off November 3rd and recently wrapped up, allowing for nearly 114 pies donated.
“This really is their first exposure to giving, and to take something that is personal to them, that they are very attached to and give it away. They are still learning how that translates to pies, but they are still learning about giving away something that is theirs,” said Program Manager for the Naperville Park District, Sara Cass.
