During their recent Homecoming week, teacher Diane Kannegieter and members of the Aurelia High School Student Council organized a "penny drive" and the high school classes were challenged to see who would win the most pennies during a week of various competitions.
The winners were the sophomore class, who raised $209.19, which they donated to Mid-Sioux Opportunities.
Mid-Sioux says people's support will be needed for other upcoming fundraisers in the future months, and these will be advertised.
Mid-Sioux continues to be a strong voice for low income families in Cherokee County, and will use the check from the Aurelia students as well as any future donations to help families in need. Photo contributed.
