Annual coin harvest raises $4,455 for Noblesville nonprofits
The Farmers Bank Noblesville Branch Manager Sydney Loomis (from left), Fire Chief Greg Wyant, Mayor John Ditslear, The Farmers Bank employees Ashley Roose and Stephanie Kissel, and Noblesville Youth Assistance’s Brandy Egan show off buckets of change, raised by Noblesville elementary school students, to benefit local nonprofits.
Change collected by Noblesville Schools' students raised $4,455 to assist local nonprofits. The annual Coin Harvest was conducted Nov. 6-10 at Noblesville's seven elementary schools.
"We cannot thank our elementary students, teachers and parents enough for their continued participation in the Coin Harvest and support of Noblesville nonprofits," said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. "I also want to thank The Farmers Bank employees for tallying up all of the change and assisting with the program."
Money raised from the Coin Harvest will be donated to the 2018 Mayor's Jubilee beneficiaries - Noblesville Youth Assistance Program, Noblesville Firefighters Christmas Food and Toy Drive, The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, and the Trinity Free Clinic.
Students were asked to bring loose change or complete chores for money, which they dropped into a classroom bucket. The classroom that collected the most money at each school wins a pizza party with Mayor Ditslear.
"I hope the Coin Harvest establishes the importance of helping others and donating to worthy local charities in our kindergarten through fifth-grade students. If the sentiment of this program has a lasting impact on our students, it will serve our community well in the future," Ditslear said.
The 2018 Mayor's Charity Jubilee is scheduled for July 13.
