A little loose change is going a long way this holiday season.
This year is the tenth annual Pennies for Pies fundraiser, held by the Naperville Park District.
The fundraiser encourages people to donate loose change, which will be donated to Loaves and Fishes to provide pies for families in need during the holidays.
“We know that by donating over 100 pies over the past several years, each year, it certainly impacts many families in the area,” said Brad Wilson, Director of Recreation from the Naperville Park District.
Donation jars are located at several park district locations, including the administration building, the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, and the Riverwalk Café, and donations will be accepted until November 18th.
Last year, donations totaled over $500, enough to provide over 100 pies to families in need.
