Teach Elementary School worked hard to raise money for Jack’s Helping Hand by competing in a friendly “Penny Wars” competition.

After four days of collecting pennies, coins and cash, the students raised a total of more than $900. The Teach student council donated a check for that amount to Jack’s Helping Hand, which benefits students from that school.
