Pennies Turn Into Pies

Local preschoolers are digging into their pockets, for pie.

Naperville Park District Preschoolers are bringing in their loose change to kick off the 6th Annual Pennies for Pies Event.

The donations will provide pies for less fortunate families on Thanksgiving.

The Naperville Park District has partnered with Loaves and Fishes for the fundraiser since 2008.

Erin Pitara, Director of Early Childhood Programming at the Park District hopes that the tots take away more than just a slice.

“One, contributing as part of a group effort, and another is maybe helping somebody who is a little less fortunate then they are and then of course some pre academic concepts,” said Pitera.

Change is collected until the 15th and the classes hope to surpass the 140 pies donated last year.
